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

IMPORTANT NOTICE

We are really sorry but following the advice from Bishop Stephen, we will be shutting St. Luke’s from Monday 23 March until further notice.

We are all being asked to stay at home except for essential tasks such as food shopping or medical visits to prevent further spread of Coronavirus. In light of that we can not encourage people to come to the church, even for prayer.

The building may be shut but St. Luke’s is very much alive and here for you. We will continue to stream services and prayer and we will continue to pray for you, requests can be emailed to us directly using the link in the footer below. We are also here to offer pastoral, spiritual and emotional support.

We don’t have to be in the building to be close to God, we can pray, light candles, read our Bibles and meet with him afresh where we are.

“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Every Blessing,
Gemma

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.
