Worship at St Lukes is based around the Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion or The Lord’s Supper.
When we meet for worship on Sunday mornings we sing, hear bible readings, a talk from the priest or special guest preacher to help apply the bible readings to our lives, we pray for the world in all its needs, and then we gather around the altar to receive the bread and wine.
At our gatherings the priest and his assistants wear traditional robes, there are candles on the altar, and we use A Prayer Book for Australia for our liturgy (prayers). We are very traditional in that we also use incense and sanctuary bells. This tradition helps us in coming before God in “the beauty of holiness” to quote one of our hymns.
We aim to be very welcoming towards all newcomers to help them get the most from our times of worship as we come into God’s presence together. We also provide a beautiful morning tea afterwards if you can stay on afterwards.
Details of our worship are as follows:
9:30 am with Children’s Ministry beginning at the same time.
10 am in the St Augustine Chapel. There is also the offer of prayers for healing at the conclusion of this service.
