Welcome to Saint Luke’s, Gillingham, Medway’s hidden gem!
Saint Luke’s is a large red-brick Edwardian church in a typical backstreet parish, home to a small and friendly community of faith trying its best to be the Body of Christ in this part of the Medway Towns. Our people are from all walks of life and of all ages (from new-born to ninety+): children and young people including students who might prefer a more traditional form of worship are especially welcome and are encouraged to take an active part in our services. You’ll find 25 to 40 of us in church on a ‘normal’ Sunday morning (with more on major Festivals) – attendance varies wildly depending on the weather, school holidays etc. – so there’s always plenty of room for visitors and newcomers. We’re definitely not a mega-church!
Our compact little parish extends from Corporation Road in the east to Mill Road in the west and from the north side of Saunders Street to the riverside (including the new Liberty Quays, Prospect Place and Victory Pier developments as well as the newly-begun development of ‘Chatham Waters’ on the commercial harbour site). If you’re one of the 6000 or so who live in this area, we’re your local Anglican parish church.
Saint Luke’s celebrates and preaches the Incarnation. Jesus Christ is Emmanuel – ‘God with us’, and it is this faith in Christ, God made man, crucified, risen, and alive today, that lies at the heart of our parish life.
