St. Luke's

St. Luke's

St. Luke’s Anglican Church seeks to follow the Gospel teachings of Jesus by loving our neighbours and serving our community. We strive to better the lives of people of all ages, ethnicities, abilities, faiths, and sexual orientations by providing hospitality, programs, services and support. We demonstrate this commitment to our community by participating in groups such as the Halton Poverty Roundtable, the Interfaith Council of Halton, and the Bronte Creek Community Residents’ Association. We offer worship services that nourish people’s souls. We have a Compassion and Care Team whose members visit our neighbours in hospitals, long term care centres, and homes. 

St Luke's Community Centre's mission is to “Transform Lives and Build Community,” and we are working every day to bring that mission to life. We have partnered with many organizations from across Halton Region, including The Alzheimer Society, The Centre for Skills Development and Training, Food for Life and Nourishing Neighbours food bank, Oakville Parent-Child Centre, Palermo Village Retirement Residence, Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK), Positive Space Network, Community Living Oakville, ArtHouse, Teach Empower, Advocate for Community Health (TEACH) and others who provide vital services to our community. We also host several recreational and educational programs such as martial arts classes, dance lessons, cooking programs, yoga classes, and community gatherings. Many of the programs and services provided by St. Luke’s and our partners offer significant opportunities for people of all ages to share their gifts through volunteering. This enables them to “give back” and develop new skills and relationships. St. Luke’s is a safe beautiful, resourced, space where there are a myriad of opportunities for people to grow in relationship with Jesus, get to know their neighbours, connect with services, learn, play, grow, and belong. 

Services

Sung Eucharist

Sundays at 10:30 am

Everyone is welcome to join us on Sunday morning at our 10:30am Eucharistic Celebration!

We use the form of the Eucharist found in the Anglican Church’s Book of Alternative Services (p. 185). Our service offers a focus on the Bible (our Holy Scriptures) and the Sacrament of the Eucharist. We celebrate with an open table—which means that everyone is welcome to join us at the Lord’s Table.

Our worship is conducted by one of our two Co-Rectors (the official term for the Priest serving the Parish which in other denominations is the Pastor or Minister of the congregation). Other lay people (who are not ordained) assist in leading our worship.

Our service music is led by our Music Director and our wonderful intergenerational choir!

We offer ministry for children and youth and supervised care for your little ones throughout the service time.

Please join us and see what it means to be part of the family at St Luke’s!

Morning Prayer (and Bible Study)

Wednesdays at 9:30am

Everyone is welcome to join us on Wednesday mornings to celebrate Morning Prayer. This is a traditional form of prayer service within the Anglican Church. We pray together, we read from scripture, and join together in fellowship.

Our Morning Prayer begins at 9:30 every Wednesday morning and is followed by an optional Bible Study. This is where we get the opportunity to talk about the scriptures that we have read and understand them more fully, while seeking to apply them to our lives today. It is almost always a very spirited conversation and opportunity to learn things about our scriptures, our faith, and ourselves!
