The St Luke's Community Centre is a place where numerous programmes and activities are run throughout the year for the benefit of the wider community and parish members. There are art, music, education, cooking, and children's programmes. In addition there are many community groups that hire rooms here, not to mention the 35 counsellors who see clients here.
The Centre was opened in November 1984. Since then hundreds of thousands of people have passed through our doors. They have taken advantage of the opportunities from exploration and growth offered by our programmes and those offered by the many other groups based here.
Around seventy thousand people enter this place each year. Our aim is for them to leave believing that in some way or another they are better for having been here.
We know, because people tell us, that having been in our buildings and having shared something of our life has made a difference for participants in courses (both ours and others' courses), for clients seeing counsellors, for participants in worship, for participants at lectures, and for receivers of hospitality. We hope that might be your experience also.
We look forward to seeing you and to you sharing with us in making a difference to people, society, and to the religious and spiritual quest through honest enquiry, good humour, warm compassion, commitment to diversity and openness to new perspectives.
