Our children’s and teenagers groups run most Sunday’s of the year with the exception of the first Sunday of the month which is our All Age Service. We have a busy and fun-packed programme to cater for the large number of children and teenagers who are a part of the church family at St Luke’s. Bible teaching, friendships and fun are at the heart of our activities. All of our leaders are DBS checked and we have a team of volunteers who are looking forward to spending Sunday morning with your child/children.
