Ministers to the sick and housebound

St Luke’s offers Pastoral visits to people in nursing homes, or confined to private homes or in hospital. The purpose of this ministry is to provide the sick or the lonely with an experience of care and concern of their faith community and also, to provide an opportunity to pray with others and to receive Eucharist. It is one way to keep the sick connected with our faith community. Our Parish has a wonderful team of people who take Communion on a regular basis to those who are unable to attend Church. If you wish to be added to this list please call the Parish Office or check the Parish Directory for those involved in Pastoral Care or the Prayer Chain.

Healing at St Luke’s

There is an active Healing Group in St Luke’s (Order of St Luke the physician). They meet at 12pm in the Chapel on the 4th Sunday of the Month, (from January to November) followed by a shared lunch. About 3 times a year there is a healing service. All who are interested in Christian Healing are welcome, whether to ask for

healing - or to pray for healing for others.

There is also anointing for healing (for yourself or someone else) during communion at the 10am service on the first Sunday, and at the 8am service on the 2nd Sunday.

There is also prayer in the chapel at every 10am Service except the first Sunday.
