How are we going to care for people while St Luke’s is not meeting for public services on Sundays?
We are going to review our pastoral and caring arrangements in the coming weeks. We hope to introduce additional ways we can all support one another. Galatians teaches us that we are to “carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Serving our Community
During this season of closures and isolation we know that many in the church and across our community will still need pastoral care and support. Whether it’s physical needs, emotional support or spiritual counsel the church is ready to help. We have created some top-tips to help our community during the shutdown.
In the first instance, we hope to have a visible presence in the community – on the streets if not in houses.
We will continue to visit people safely, phoning/texting in advance to check it is safe to go round. Those visiting will take their temperature and use hand gel before visiting.
In addition we will increase our use of phone calls, text messages, social media and will explore other ways of meeting online (e.g. Face-time or Zoom). In the next week we will devise a telephone-tree that should enable more of the St Luke’s Community to be caring of each other.
