Harvest & Shoebox Sunday - 7th October

Harvest & Shoebox Sunday -7th Oct, 10:30am

This year, our Harvest service will be combined with Shoebox Sunday. Instead of collecting harvest gifts, we are supporting the Bishop of St Albans’ Harvest Appeal “Give Peas a Chance”: 

Empowering farming families in Southern Malawi through offering the opportunity to cultivate the remarkable Pigeon Pea, which is drought-resistant and puts nitrogen back into the soil. This nutritious and commercially valuable crop is changing lives and putting new hope within reach - so lets "Give Peas a Chance!"

We are aiming to raise £500 for a Farmer's club. If you would like to contribute, please bring along your donation in place of any harvest gifts  - and don't forget your shoe box!

Step are coming to St Luke’s - 16th September

Sunday, September 16th, 10.30am

Sunday September 16th

Step…

…are coming to St Luke’s!

They are bringing two of the mega activities they use in schools, and they will also be chatting with us in the iMatter Cafe.

So at 10.30 we will begin and finish together, and have thought-provoking i-pod guided Step stuff in the middle!

Invite your friends! Bring your children age 7+! It’s a completely different way to meet God.

There will be normal Sunday activities for under-7s, and the 9am service will happen as normal.

#GodWithUs: Your Christmas Journey

December may be a time of year when moments of peace and quiet reflection are in short supply. #GodWithUs: Your Christmas Journey offers a series of simple reflections throughout December, and daily from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day. Each reflection is accompanied by a picture, a challenge and a short Bible reading to help you make connections between the Christmas story and your own life. Booklets with all of the reflections will be available shortly at St Luke's - please take a copy for yourself, and also copies for your friends and family.

You can also signup to get the reflections delivered to your phone or your inbox - visit www.churchofengland.org/Christmas for more details.
