WHAT’S IT LIKE AT ST LUKE AND ST MATTHEW?
Sunday’s at St Luke and St Matthew are enriching, nurturing and welcoming. The music is sublime. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest. After the service hang back and meet some of the community.
After the 11:00am service the community enjoys coffee and conversation in the lower parish hall. This is a time to mingle and get to know one another. *Coffee and conversation has been postponed until further notice due to Covid-19.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
Kids ministry is offered at the 11:00am service for kids ages infant through Grade 8.
We believe that kids should experience the love of God in community and learn what it means to follow Jesus from a young age. We aim to provide a welcoming environment for families within the service and in Christian education.
Our priority is to allow you to feel connected with Jesus as a family and to ensure your children’s safety whilst amongst us. Because of that, we have a registration process for our Christian education program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the kids ministry experience.
