Worship at St Luke's is to experience the sharing of God's love in a family and friendly environment. There are 2 services held every Sunday, each with a different character and worship style. Our services are supported with hymns, accompanied by Pipe Organ or Piano. The order of service and hymn words are all displayed in PowerPoint presentations, so easily followed by all. Our worship is normally led by our Rector who is supported by a team of Licenced Liturgical Assistance, readers and intercessors.
Additional services are run for Festivals, Saints Days, Christmas, Good Friday and Easter. See our EVENTS page for details.
7:00am Sunday - This service is based on the Australian Prayer Book, Second Order of Worship. It is Eucharist service with sung responses. Communion is offered each service.
9:00am Sunday - This service is designed to support family worship and is integrated with our Children's Ministry. The service maintains key elements of the Eucharist service, but presented in a less structured manner, allowing the Children to leave the service for the separate Children's Ministry program, then return later in the service. Communion is offered each service. This service will be live streamed on ZOOM.
A worship service for residents and friends is also held at Regis Aged Care, 279 Lillian Avenue Salisbury on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 1:30pm.
A mid-week service of Holy Communion is held at 9.30am on the last Wednesday of each month, and weekly during Lent.
St Luke's Church was consecrated in 1956. It has been progressively updated since then, with a PA system, video projection and screen, full air conditioning, and a ramp for disabled access to the front door. It can seat approx 150 in the Silky Oak pews. There are stained glass windows behind the Holy Table and on the west wall.
The pipe organ is by Charles Dirkson, installed in 1958, then reconditioned in the late 1980's. It is a 2 manual, 4 rank instrument, with extensions and a full pedalboard.
There is a large car park to the rear of the church, and an open "village green" area that was originally a tennis court.

Weddings can be held in St Luke's. We can arrange organists, and provide some access to other services that may be required. Weddings can be held on Saturday's or other days by arrangement. Your service can utilise music of your choice through our PA system, and include video projections. The Hall can also be used for refreshments if required. Rates are by arrangement.
Baptism is a sacred rite where you welcomed into our Church and the Anglican faith by the pouring over of consecrated water. Parents may bring infant children for baptism, or if older children or mature age persons are interested, the Rector may run a short preparation course to ensure candidates are fully informed.
