Artists In Residence

St Luke is the patron saint of artists and St Lukes has always had a bit of a thing for painters and poets, musicians and dancers… anyone who feels the need to create. We have people in and around the church buildings most days of the week making music or rehearsing plays or painting pictures.

And if our choirmaster Justin Butcher isn’t rehearsing one of his plays in the building, he’s probably conducting the community choir Vox Holloway. The sound of Rick Leigh playing his trumpet or working on some other musical project can often fill the air.
