Welcome to St. Luke’s Church; a place of worship, warmth and hospitality.

St. Luke’s is the Church of England parish church for Moulsham Lodge and Tile Kiln, on the edge of the city of Chelmsford. We aim to love God, each other and the world around us, to grow together as followers of Jesus and to serve our local community.
Whether you come here for a service, event or a visit we can assure you of a warm welcome.

Our clear glass windows are a constant reminder to those inside that their mission is to bring the Gospel to those outside”

John Tiarks, Bishop of Chelmsford speaking at St. Luke’s dedication service in 1962

Home Groups & Prayer Groups

In response to your requests for a greater focus on bible study and prayer, we have some exciting news…

Revd Gemma will be leading a home group on the last Thursday evening of the month for the next three months until Lent on 30 January, 27 February and 26 March at 7.30pm. These will be hosted at Dawn’s house on Heath Drive.

The group will be a time of bible study conversation and prayer. Each session will be standalone so if you can’t make one session, you can still go to the others. Please let any of the wardens or Gemma or Dawn know if you are going to join so we have an idea of numbers.

Eastertide Course

Rather than running a Lent Course, we will be joining with the other churches in Moulsham Lodge and Tile Kiln for an Eastertide Course called 24/7 Prayer. This will help equip and inspire us to go deeper into prayer, as individuals and as a church family.

The course will run for eight weeks on Thursdays from the week commencing 20 April; there will be a morning session held at Moulsham Lodge Methodist Church and an evening session (venue to be confirmed). St. John’s will also be running the same course on a Monday evening over the same period and anyone from St. Luke’s will be welcome.

Our Church is Open Daily

St. Luke’s Church is an open house of prayer and is therefore open to the public weekdays from 9am to 4pm and weekend mornings. It is our hope that those who enter may enjoy the space and feel free to use it whenever they wish.

Prayer Requests

A Prayer Request Board is provided to allow you to make your prayer needs known (prayer slips are provided in the basket beneath the prayer board). You may also submit a Prayer Request directly to us using the link in the footer below.
