The Friends of St Luke’s is a group of members of the church and the local community interested in preserving and investing in the Grade 2* listed building (awarded for its historical importance). The aim is to raise funds towards restoration and repair at St. Luke’s and to increase awareness of this remarkable building in our local community and far beyond.
It is also an opportunity to develop a group of volunteers who can ensure the building is open more often as part of our mission for even more engagement with visitors and locals alike.
The church is always open on Sunday and Wednesday mornings for services, as well as open for Morning Prayer at 8.30am from Monday through to Thursday. Whenever the door is open at other times there are always visitors, whether by arrangement with local schools or walking tours, or simply those who were “just passing”. We would love to be able to be open more often and to do so we need to develop a group of volunteers.
