About Us

We are a lively, friendly and caring church family who offer a warm welcome whether you are just visiting or moving into the village.  Most Sundays over 100 people come along to one or other of our services.

We have a variety of services which cater for different preferences within the church family. These range from informal services led by a small worship groups to more traditional Anglican services led by a robed choir and organist. Whilst catering for a wide age range and preferences of styles of worship there is a clear unity and love between us which is frequently commented upon by visitors to the church.  (See our Services page for more details)


Key to the strength of the St Luke's church family are gathering in small groups which meet weekly or fortnightly in and around the village.  There is an open bible study for anyone to join on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month.  The group is currently folowing the Scripture Union BIble Course. https://www.biblesociety.org.uk 

Our church plays an important role in the life of the village and is continually looking at ways to build on its links with the community.  St Luke's hosts or offers the venue to support  the Christmas Tree Festival,  Open Garden Teas, and an OakhavenThanksgiving Service.  We offer Pastoral and hospital to anyone in the parish whether a church member or not.  (see our Caring for You pages)

Children & Families are at the heart of our vision for the future; Jane, our Vicar along with the team of wonderful volunteers are at the heart of sharing the good news of Jesus with younger people. Jane or church members  take regular assemblies at St Luke's School and Jane Lizzie Smith are Foundation Governors to jhelp maintain the distinctive characteristic of the school.   There is a fun and dedicated team from St Luke's members leading "Open the Book' weekly in St Luke's when short bible stories are acted out to the whole school -  often with younger volunteers helping!  Messy Church is our main monthly focus for worship for families and takes place straight after school, and is proving a great hit with local families.  

The church building itself was built in 1839 and has had extensions and alterations since then. It can seat about 250 people, but has been known at certain services to squeeze in more! It is surrounded by gardens and a churchyard that are beautifully maintained by a group of parishioners. Opposite the church are our Church Rooms and office accommodation. These were built in the 1970s and provide a lovely setting for gatherings, meetings and a variety of events . The rooms are used extensively throughout the week by both the church and village groups and are available to book. (Find out more about the church buiding and its history on "Our Church" page)
