This Sunday, 22 January, St Luke’s will be enjoying a visit from the Bishop of Stepney at our 11am service.
Bishop Adrian Newman is joining us to bless our two new icons, painted by Meg Wroe and Daisy Holland, and to get to know the church better. He’ll be preaching on art and spirituality, and we look forward to meeting him and hearing what he has to say.
The Rt Revd Adrian Newman has been Bishop of Stepney (our area diocese) since 2011. He was once introduced as ‘the most un-Dean-like Dean in the Church of England’ – a description he quite liked, and he’s currently doing a good job of being ‘a most un-Bishop-like Bishop’. He should feel at home at St Luke’s, a most un-church-like church!
Please join us in giving Bishop Adrian a very warm welcome.
2017 has arrived, and St Luke’s wishes a ‘happy new year’ to everyone in our parish of West Holloway, and beyond.
Our vicar, Dave Tomlinson, makes regular appearances on Pause For Thought on Radio 2 and Martin Wroe appears on Thought for the Day on Radio 4. This week, Dave delivered a new year message to listeners of Radio 2’s Breakfast Show with Sara Cox. In it, he offers good advice for creating a happier life in 2017 (and reveals that wearing a clerical collar makes you a bit of a lady magnet!).
You can have a listen here:
For more pearls of wisdom from Dave and our other inspiring speakers, you’re always welcome to join us for our all-age service at St Luke’s, every Sunday at 11am.
May 2017 be your best year ever!
