Welcome to the home page of St. Luke’s Church, Modbury!
At St. Luke’s we aim to be a warm and friendly Christian fellowship in which members are encouraged to grow in their Christian faith, follow Jesus in their daily lives and serve the local community and wider world.
Formally, we are an Anglican Church, which means we are part of a broader group of churches (over 60 in all) which together form the Diocese of Adelaide.
Anglican Churches can vary quite widely in their approach to the style of their worship and the focus of their mission activities.
At St Luke’s we currently offer two worship services each Sunday morning. The earlier service (8am) is a quiet, reflective service while our 9.30am service is livelier and makes use of a mix of traditional hymns and modern choruses. Both services include a sharing in Holy Communion. Newcomers and visitors are, of course, most welcome at both services.
We engage in a range of missional and service activities including:
Foodbank support on alternate Wednesday mornings. Click here for more information about FoodBank.

Lent is one of the seasons of the church year that most people know little about. Those Australians who have heard of Lent possibly recall that it has something to do with giving up something they enjoy (like chocolate, maybe!), but few would know why.
Originally Lent was a 40 day period of fasting prior Easter during which baptismal candidates and penitents engaged in prayer and fasting prior to their admission (or re-admission) to Holy Communion. Later the practice was adopted by other Christians as a means to help them reflect on the meaning of the cross and resurrection of Jesus, which the Church recalls every Easter.
