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”

Giving for Christmas

During December St Luke’s will be supporting Crisis, the national charity for homeless people. Did you know that £28.22 not only covers a Christmas dinner but will also help fund year-round support including training and education so that people experiencing homelessness are given the chance to leave homelessness behind for good?

Donations can be made by giving envelopes (in church) or online:

Advent Course - Light in the Darkness

We are starting our Advent Bible Study and Meditation on Monday 7 December. The course is called ‘Light in the Darkness’ and reflects on what it means to be exactly that!

We will be meeting on Zoom every Monday evening in Advent at 7.30pm and the study guide is available to download below:

Church Open Monday to Saturday

The church building will be open for you to pop in and pray or just to enjoy a quiet space on Mondays to Saturdays, from 9am to 3pm.

Please continue to follow all guidelines on social distancing and hand sanitising, ensure you wear a face covering (unless you are exempt), and remember to stay at home if you are feeling at all unwell, even if you believe it is something other than Covid-19.

Remember Me

In honour of the thousands who have lost their lives in the UK to coronavirus, a new online memorial has been launched so that people can pay their tributes. Family, friends and carers of those who have died can submit the name and photograph of their loved one, along with a short message in their memory, through the Remember Me website. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has shown his support for the unique project, recording a special message in honour of the launch.

If you wish to make a contribution in honour of a loved one, please visit the website:

Online Giving

Across the nation, indeed across the world, people and organisations are suffering financially because of the Covid-19 pandemic; St. Luke’s Church amongst them. We are working hard to protect our financial future but we anticipate the impact to be approximately £10,000 due to loss of income.

We want our building – the church and the halls – to continue to be at the centre of our community, as a resource for so many groups and clubs, for the young and not so young. We want to be able to continue to provide services and prayer as well as offering pastoral care to people who are struggling spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Some of you are already regularly supporting the work of the church and we are so grateful to you. If you feel that you could support St. Luke’s financially, please consider making an online donation – and gift aiding your donation if you are a taxpayer. If you feel able to give a regular monthly donation, please contact us by phone or email.

Your donation will help steer us through this difficult time and ensure that St. Luke’s is here to live out the vision to ‘Love, Grow and Serve’ for many years to come.

A Prayer For Moving Forward

We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs
For as long as it takes
wherever you call us.
Amen
