St Lukes Watford – a welcoming church

The church is currently closed for services, we will keep you updated! Please check out our YouTube page for services.

Are you new to the area or just visiting and coming to St Luke’s Watford for the first time?

Here’s what you can expect and what you should know…

We’re welcoming. People often tell us that we’re good at welcoming visitors and new people. You will be greeted at the door by a member of the welcoming team who will show you into the church and make sure that you have everything you need for worship and that you are comfortable. Inside the church sanctuary you will be given a notice sheet by the steward and, if required, guided to a seat.


Children

Children are very welcome at St Luke’s and the first part of the worship service is for all ages. Except for All Age Worship, children are encouraged to leave during the main 10.30am service to attend children and youth sessions with our youth leadership team. A crêche is also available throughout the services and has a video and audio link to the church sanctuary so that parents/carers don’t miss a thing!


Hearing aid loop etc

St Luke’s uses projection equipment for displaying the words to worship songs and hymns as well as the Bible readings. Please let the stewards know if you would prefer a Bible to read from. The church is also equipped with a hearing aid loop and all our leaders, preachers and singers use microphones. Large print copies of the songs are available at the morning services.


Coffee and tea after church

Due to current Covid-19 guidelines, there is no tea and coffee served in the church. We have a tea and coffee meet-up on Zoom 25 minutes after the morning service, which you are very welcome to join. Please email the office or see the Vicar’s weekly email for the sign-in code.


Services

As well as the 10.30 service there is an 8.30am Holy Communion service and a 7pm evening service. Please see the page on worship times for more details.
