St Luke's

St.Luke's has been the second church of the Parish since the early 1900s. It was built in an area of Newport Pagnell that was then growing in population. It was affectionately labelled the 'daughter' church but with its title perhaps should have been called the 'brother' to St.Peter & St.Paul.

At the time of its build, and for a long time after the town had a Vicar and a Curate and oversight of St.Luke's was given to whoever was the Curate at the time. In its first 60 or 70 years of life it had quite a number of ministers taking care of its congregations.

Nowadays St.Luke's serves both as a church and quite busy community building with groups such as, Rainbows, Brownies, and Guides, a Preschool, an Irish Dance school and a Yoga group meeting there. Plus of course our own church activities.

Over the years the congregation has grown and shrunk at times and presently is steady at a smallish number of regular worshippers.

Although we have two Anglican Church congregations in the town we do get together for special services and social events. Because of its larger size St.Peter & St.Paul lends itself better to large congregations so joint Parish services are generally held there.
