All-Age Service and Engage have moved to Second Sunday

Our monthly All-Age service has moved to a new regular slot of the Second Sunday each month, still from 9.30 am.  Breakfast, crafts and games as usual followed by a short service at 10 am with drama, dance and songs. Some months there are Services of Thanksgiving for the Birth of a Child, and Baptisms ( Christenings).

Engage is our monthly informal evening service at 7 pm on the Second Sunday of the month. 

Weekly Notice Sheet

Our weekly notice sheet provides information about events during the coming week and later on.  You can usually view the latest issue by clicking here.


Outlook is the Newsletter for the whole parish of St Luke's delivered to all 3,400 houses three times a year, free of charge.  Print copies are also available from church - the Christmas 2015 edition is now available, and the next one is due to come out as Easter approaches and will contain an item about Street Pastors.

The latest Outlook contains a welcome from vicar Mark Fraser, and suggestion for a last minute present, or something for the person who seems to have everything:  Toilet Twinning.  A gift of £70 to Tearfund will twin your loo with one in the third world, and you get a certificate with photo to prove it.

You can also find details of our Christmas services and all the usual regular activities at St Luke's and weekly services.

Dads & Tods - Warning: may contain bacon (or sausage)

Dads and offspring (age 0-4) meet on the third Saturday of each month (except in August) for play and story and songs and fun.  We usually get between 15 and 20 Dads (the record was 24 in November 2014) plus their toddlers and babies and the occasional grandpa.  

The dates for 2016 are 16 Jan, 20 Feb, 19 Mar, 16 Apr, 21 May, 18 Jun, 16 Jul, 17 Sep, 15 Oct, 19 Nov and 17 Dec.  Some things that we do: in Feb we made bread, in March we did African Drumming, and in April we looked at the Good Samaritan story.  November was Strongman Samson, and December (of course) the birth of Jesus.

It runs from 10 am till 11.30 am and there's a bacon (or sausage) butty as standard.  Only big decision: red sauce or brown?   Cost - still just £1 per Dad.

For Men

Bishop Tony Porter spoke about the Church of England's Ministry of Sport and his time as a chaplain with Manchester City FC at the   Men's Breakfast on Sat 6 Feb 2016.  We recorded his talk and you can find it by clicking the Sermons tab above, or clicking here.  We had 46 men tucking into a Full English, and we're now busy planning the rest of the 2016 programme, likely to include Scalextric in town, GoKarting in Netherfield, and a Curry in Keyworth. 

Over 60s

Prime Time meets at 2 pm at Church on the first and third Thursdays of each month. Fellowship, food and a speaker.
Fellowship on Foot

A group of walkers sets off from St Luke's at 9.30 am on the last Friday of the month. The walks are about five or six miles usually in Derbyshire and we then end up in a tea room.  Anyone with boots, waterproofs and a packed lunch will be most welcome. Further details from the Church Office.
