St Luke's Church, Sway

St Lukes Church, SwayA Little About LEAF Member: St Luke's Church:

St Lukes is a lively, caring, friendly church family who offer newcomers a warm welcome whether they are just visiting or new people moving into the village.

St Luke’s has been a beacon of God’s love at the heart of Sway since 1838. They seek to offer support to all members of the local community. Many local families have gathered for christenings, weddings and funerals at St Luke’s over the generations; but it isn’t just about these important times in all our lives: they want the church to be a place that will be a centre for worship, ministry and mission within our community.

Most Sundays about 150 people worship at St Luke’s at one or other of our services. The main service is at 9.30am when primary aged children attend our Sunday Club and 11 – 14 year olds worship at Pathfinders. There is a variety of services which cater for varying preferences within the church family. These range from informal services led by a small worship group to more traditional Anglican services led by a robed choir and organist. Whilst catering for a wide age range and preferences of styles of worship there is a clear unity and love between us which is frequently commented upon by visitors to the church.
