Weekly Letter from St Luke's - 13 October 2023
This weekend we celebrate our patronal festival, the feast of St Luke, evangelist and martyr. Luke is associated with the writing of more of the New Testament than any other writer, both the gospel that bears his name and the book of Acts. Thus his interpretation of the life and teachings of Jesus, and the concerns of the early church have left a great legacy for the church though the ages. In particular a concern for those on the margins of society come to the fore, from Mary's words in the Magnificat to the story of the Good Samaritan.
Our services this weekend are 7am (Holy Communion) and 9am (family service with communion - also streamed on Zoom). Children's Church also restarts this weekend at 9am on Sunday. The weekly notice paper and 9am service sheet are available via the links below.
At 11.30 you are invited to join us in Laura Street Park for a parish picnic. Bring all that you need (including food, drink, chairs and dogs) and look out for the St Luke's banner.
As the national referendum finally arrives I invite you to prayerfully consider how to exercise your awesome responsibility and pray that, whatever the outcome, our country will be able to move forward united.
Our lower hall is a polling place, and so we will be running a sausage sizzle and a craft/cake stall. Please contact Janette if you are able to help.
Yours in Christ
