At the moment we are extending our building! We will see the west end of church built out to the road. This will create more space and community rooms, which we want to fill with new projects throughout the week. These vibrant community projects will range from youth programmes to work with the elderly.
While the building work takes place we are worshipping at St Luke’s School on Beeston Road, just round the corner. We hope to be back in our church building in Summer 2020.

Your Community Hub
We love our community and so we can continue to serve and increase our capacity to respond to these needs we are in the process of building a community hub. Our existing church building and facilities are being refurbished and extended to provide increased space and resources. The hub will be fully accessible, have a well equipped kitchen, new meeting rooms to run projects, an IT suite and office space.
We will be able to host many more community events, drop-ins and advice services, provide activities including dance and arts opportunities for children and young people and events for the elderly. We will work to empower local people with various learning volunteering and upskilling opportunities – bringing communities together.
Building commenced in July 2019 and is scheduled to be finished in March 2020. We excited about the completion of this fantastic, purpose-designed space, that will enable to to bring significant positive impact and growth.
Throughout the development process it was vital that we connected with local people and this approach will continue once the hub is in operation. It is important to us to continue to work in partnership with members of our community. Throughout years of serving this locality, St. Luke’s also has built strong relationships with other excellent community providers and we are seeking to further develop and expand these opportunities as the hub moves forward.
We recognise that the hub would not have been possible without the backing of numerous supporters. We are extremely grateful for generous financial support received from The Community Fund, LCES, All Churches Trust, Bernard Sunley, National Churches Trust, and Cloth Workers, as well as many local people and other anonymous donors – Sincerest thanks for enabling us to reach, serve and change the lives of the amazing people surrounding us.
