St Luke’s Anglican Church is an inclusive community that centres around God’s total self giving, the Holy Eucharist. Steeped in a Contemplative Spirituality, we embrace a vision of community, tradition, mystery and hope. The Holy Trinity, Adonai, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit invites us to “become participants in the divine nature” ( 2 Peter 1:4), and so we yield to the divine indwelling as “God became human that human would become god” (St Athanatius).
Join us for our principal Sunday sung Eucharistic celebrations with programming for children: traditional at 10 am and ‘in the round’ at 4:30 pm. On Wednesdays at 11 am we share in a simple ‘lectio divina’ oriented liturgy with Holy Eucharist, we gather for Centering Prayer on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 and on the first Friday of every month for our Labyrinth Walk and Mediation.
The first fruit of a Eucharistic and Contemplative Spirituality is a robust hospitality and work for social justice. We strive to follow the first commandment:
“To love one another” (John 13:34). We need your help serving the world God loves, in Jesus’ name.
You are welcome here, join us!
Below, please find the description of the above image 'Gentile Embrace' by the artist Johan Andersson's at his website: http://www.johanandersson.com/.

‘Gentile Embrace’ is a provocative modern-day rendition of biblical scenes, including Da Vinci’s Last Supper, with Jesus Christ surrounded by more current figures that have been judged or outcast by society. The characters include the homeless, drug addicts, and convicts. The whole ‘Gentile Embrace’ series is about updating Biblical scenes and asking ourselves which modern archetypes those stories would have included.
The series stirs a reaction in the viewer to look deep within himself or herself to confront their false sense of inadequacy, suggesting that there is nobody who is exempt from God’s use. Throughout Biblical history, God has used weak archetypes to shame the wise and proud, revealing his strength through weakness. These lessons illustrate our dependency on a force greater than ourselves, allowing us to discover our true identity through the unveiling of unconditional love.
