“the light shines in the darkness”
Welcome to St Luke’s Church
We are a lively Evangelical Anglican church made up of all ages based in the village of Thurnby on the eastern edge of Leicester.
Our foundations are:
Belonging – living as the family of Jesus
Growing – becoming more like Jesus
Multiplying – proclaiming Jesus and planting churches
Serving – living out the love of Jesus
Whether you have been following Jesus for many years, have recently become a Christian, or just want to explore what Christianity is all about, you are welcome to join us at any of our services or events.
We are part of the Cornerstone Team of churches, along with neighbouring villages of Houghton and Stoughton.
“Such a wonderful special church family.”
“Solid bible teaching and great band-led worship.”
“I love the lifelong friendships I have made here and very much value the sound Biblical teaching each week.”
“Both our children love this church!”
“Children are warmly welcomed to take part in worship here and are very much part of this wonderful church community. There’s tons that goes on for children and young people at St Luke’s and the leaders are fantastic and clearly love Jesus!”
“Definitely a fantastic church for children and young people to grow in their relationship with God.”
“One of the first songs I remember singing had the line “ Just come as you are”. This made me feel very at home which was great as I was brand new to church and I’m a very nervous person.”
“It is a place where I feel very comfortable and I consider everyone there as extended family, even though we are certainly a bunch of ‘all-sorts’!”
“Services are never ‘heavy’ and there’s always a practical and uplifting message to take away.”
“I was intrigued enough about Christianity to walk through the door of St Luke’s a couple of years ago. I hung onto my chair with white knuckles, half expecting to be drugged by the cakes and coffee. Weirdly, a couple of years later, I really do regard everyone there as ‘close family’.”
“Great community of people who demonstrate genuine love and care to one another, who hunger to know God more through His word, His Son and the Holy Spirit.”
