Update Friday 12th February 2021

Hello!  Another change in operations as we quickly adapt to get ahead of COVID 19 and keep each other safe.  The St Luke’s buildings are closed and will re-open on Thursday the 18th of February unless we are advised differently.  Sunday worship will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel.  Our short service to mark the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday will take place via Zoom from 7 to 7:30pm.  To receive the link, please RSVP here if you are not already on St Luke’s contact list.

   

The faith community continues to gather in virtual ways, and you can find us online here:

These are the virtual spaces we will use to deliver Worship recordings and other messages, we also post our worship links here tagged ‘Worship’. Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1862447484018154 – email Robyn info@stlukes.uca.org.au to be invited.

When possible, the St Luke’s congregation gathers on Sunday morning for worship in a COVID safe way

St. Luke’s aims to be a warm and welcoming “all age” faith community that is passionate about engaging with the people  around us and the world we live in.  We believe in kindness and faith in action! Worship services happen weekly on Sunday mornings, and monthly gatherings include Messy church for all ages, House church for the more intellectually minded person, and a mid-week service especially for folk who find it difficult to get to weekly Sunday services. Our community activities include helping newly arrived immigrants settle into the Geelong area; a well attended Mens’ Shed, open to all; and a monthly Repair Cafe organised by our Environment Action Group.  We are also building our knowledge of Mental Health and Wellbeing, Through our Men’s Shed, Community garage sales and Refugee support, we’re able to ensure that furniture and goods otherwise destined for landfill are repaired in good order and distributed to people who arrive in Geelong with nothing but the clothes they wear. We welcome volunteers and the spiritually curious – anyone in search of a place to belong – if you’d like to chat to someone, please contact us on 5244 2997. Please take the time to explore our website and get to know us better.
