This is a bumper weekend for entertainment at St Luke’s – we’re spoiled for choice!

First, on Friday 28 November at 7.30pm, we have Lyrical, an evening of ‘acoustic words and spoken music’. Expect a chilled out evening of top-class music and poetry from the likes of Iain Archer, Rhian Roberts, Cole Morton and others (click on the flier above for more details) – and no doubt a glass or two of wine. Entrance costs £8 (£4 concessions) and profits go to the Women At The Well safe house for vulnerable women in King’s Cross.

Then, on Sunday 30 November at 7pm, our community choir Vox Holloway will be performing its fifth anniversary concert, Five Love. It’s an extravaganza bringing together Camden Youth Choir, Camjam (youth choir), St Luke’s Youth Choir and the 100-strong choir of Vox Holloway, plus an orchestra and acclaimed jazz soloists Liane Carroll and Emily Dankworth.

The evening will include two major performances. We’ll be treated to a storming rendition of the epic and inspiring Requiem In Blue by Harvey Brough. The choir will also be performing Songs In The Theme Of Love, a suite of songs by Nigerian singer-songwriter (and friend of St Luke’s) Ben Okafor, combining lyrical African heritage, classic folk protest and driving reggae beats – not to be missed! Doors and bar open at 6.30pm. Tickets cost £13 (£8 concessions) and are available from https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/five-love-tickets-14288472205

See you there!

Fight poverty – go fairtrade this Christmas

Here at St Luke’s, we’re keen to support fairtrade companies. If a product is labelled ‘fairtrade’, it means the producers are paid a decent price for their products and labour, and have better working conditions. This counters the injustices of conventional trade, which discriminates against the poorest producers.

St Luke’s has its own regular Traidcraft stall. Open every Sunday after the 11am service, you can pick up fairtrade basics such as rice, pasta, sugar, cereal, tea, coffee, dried fruit and chocolate. By choosing to spend our money on these products, we can each do our bit to help fight poverty and give people more control over their lives.

With Christmas fast approaching, now’s the time to check out the selection of fairtrade gifts, advent calendars, cards, decorations and wrapping paper on the Traidcraft stall. You can browse the catalogue or look online at www.traidcraftshop.co.uk, then place an order with Rachel Blackamore or Rosie Sheldon and collect your items at church (saving on postage and packing costs).

The absolute deadline for Christmas orders is 14 December (to pick up on 21 December) but popular items may sell out, so get your orders in early!

Welcome evening at St Luke’s – and you’re invited!

St Luke’s is a fast-growing church, and although we endeavour to be friendly and welcoming, it can sometimes be easy for newcomers to get lost in the crowd, and to struggle to get to know people. During our after-service coffee time, new folk – or indeed, anyone who wants to get to know others – [...]
