ABOUT US

St Luke’s is a church rooted at the heart of its community. As a church we want to see Canning Town transformed by the love of Jesus Christ. We are a growing church but there’s more than enough room for you to join us as we seek to grow in our faith together! Everyone is welcome here. 

We are family made up of people from many nations and all ages find a welcome here at St Luke’s. We have weekly activities for young people alongside weekly Bible Studies and monthly prayer meetings that everyone is invited to. Wherever you are on your journey with Jesus come and join us. Some of us have been following Jesus for years, others of us are still figuring it out. 

We share our building with St Luke’s Primary school which means we don’t look like a typical church but we have all the other essentials here- Jesus, a community where you belong, scripture, communion and of course refreshments after the service together! Apart from pews, the only thing we are missing is you! 

Come join in with us as we seek to follow God, be on a journey together and see Canning Town transformed as we seek to share God’s love with our community.
