Worship at St Luke's is to experience the sharing of God's love in a family and friendly environment. There are 3 services held every Sunday, each with a different character and worship style. Our services are supported with Hymns, either accompanied by Pipe Organ or Piano, or digital music. 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 large team of Licenced Liturgical Assistance and Lay readers.
Additional services are run for Festivals, Saints Days, Christmas, Good Friday and Easter. See our EVENTS page for details.
7:00am - 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 - This service is designed to support family worship and is integrated with our Children's Ministry. Although based on the Australian Prayer Book Second Order of Worship, 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.
5:00pm - Sunday@5. This is an informal service of worship, that on some occasions may be led by our Lay ministry team. Communion is offered on the last Sunday of each month.
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.
