|ALL St Luke’s Enmore Sunday & Wednesday church services have been cancelled until further notice.
A weekly service will be posted online and accessible via Facebook or YouTube — our channel is ‘St Lukes Enmore’
Please note: Due to broadcasting copyright restrictions we are not able to play/sing the hymns and songs during the recorded service. The hymn numbers and songs have been listed for your own purpose to use at home.
Online services: As I expected, the response has been varied to our online service held last week. Some have given high praise while others have said “Its just not the same” which of course is true. The aim is to provide what we can in a form which is still distinctively St Lukes. That’s what I am able to do. Services on Church property whether inside or outside are not allowed. I received this from the Bishop on Monday:
I’ve had a few questions about outdoor churches and/or running small non-public gatherings in church on Sundays. We advise you not to proceed with ANY church gatherings (indoor or outdoor). Bp Michael Stead
Blayney Weekend (28/29 March) has been postponed – Bathurst Diocese have decided to cancel church services after this Sunday — until further notice.

Vivid Harbour Lights Cruise postponed until 2021 – Unfortunately the NSW Government has cancelled the 2020 Vivid lights festival due to large public gathering limitation during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Confirmation – Booked in for Sunday 23rd August (but waiting to be advised). Bp Michael Stead will be here for confirmation. Anyone who is not confirmed is invited to go through the process of preparation with Fr Jeff. Please speak to Fr Jeff about this.
Food for our little friends — Don’t forget to keep your cooked food scraps, fruit peelings, tea leaves and coffee grounds for the parish worm farms. (No citrus, dairy or meat). You can still drop this off outside the office — during office hours.
Our Gourmet Cook and previous Pastoral Care Worker, Lea MacNeil, makes and sells homemade curds, relishes, pickles, preserves and jams- If you would like to order some, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be delivered to the OpShop. Also, any clean jars would be appreciated – lids not necessary. Please leave your jars in the box provided at the bottom of the stairs to the Office.
Any notices for the service booklet will need to be submitted to the Parish Office email by Tuesday evening at the latest. This is so we can post out the weekly service booklet earlier.
