Music at St Luke's
Our vision for Music at St Luke’s is to inspire and nurture the Auckland community, to draw in others and to make the church a well-used and vibrant concert venue for a wide range of music.
St Luke’s offers choirs and other music groups the opportunity to make the venue their musical home for the year or for just one concert.

• Friendly, helpful staff
• Free use of the kitchen for entertaining your guests during or after the concert
• Modest rates
• Assistance with the marketing of your concerts

In addition to the church, we also have a wide range of rooms for hire.
