Not receiv­ing emails from Fr Jeff?  Each Sunday and Wed­nes­day, an email con­tain­ing the Sunday Ser­vice and then a Wed­nes­day reflec­tion is being sent to every­one on our email list.  In some cases parish­ion­ers believe they are not receiv­ing them.  We have found that in many cases the email has gone to their ‘spam’ or ‘junk’ file.  This hap­pens with some email pro­viders.  If you haven’t received an email from the par­ish or Fr Jeff on these days, check those oth­er folders and you will prob­ably find it.

Changes to Office Open­ing Days – The office is closed until fur­ther notice. Jen­nifer will be work­ing from home on Tues­day, Wed­nes­day and Thursday from 9.15–2.45pm.  Please email or if urgent call Mob: 0409 049 442.



ST PAUL’S PANTRY des­per­ately needs food.  Please keep col­lect­ing your dona­tions of tinned and non-per­ish­able food items.  You will be able to bring them in to the church when ser­vices resume.


Organ Pipes


Sunday, 5 Septem­ber 2021 at 3pm – Keep and broad­cast the date!

Well-known to Sydney audi­ences, St Luke’s is delighted to wel­come Heath­er Moen-Boyd to per­form an inaug­ur­al recit­al on the Church’s unique 1883 Wordsworth & Maskell Pipe Organ.

From Moz­art to Mendels­sohn, whose works were per­formed at the instrument’s 1884 recit­al, the per­form­ance will also include Samuel Barber’s Adagio to mark Yom Kip­pur and Septem­ber 11, and pas­tor­al bird­song to her­ald the com­ing Spring.

RSVP:  At present it is unclear wheth­er any pan­dem­ic restric­tions at the time will per­mit an audi­ence to be phys­ic­ally present, or if an audi­ence is per­mit­ted, the num­bers and require­ments to ensure the safety of the artist and the audience.

A fur­ther update will be provided by Fri­day, 27 August 2021.
