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:

Power Outage at St Luke’s – important information including cancelled welcome afternoon tea.


Late last Friday evening or early Saturday morning, vandalism of the electric supply cables, possibly due to attempted theft of copper, caused a substantial fault in the underground cables which supply power to the church building, Op Shop and Garden Sheds. All of these buildings are currently without power and will remain so until the fault is rectified. Two contractors have told us that, to fix the problem, new power cables will need to be laid. Subject to Diocesan and insurance approval, the Executive of Parish Council (the Wardens, Treasurer, Council Secretary and me) has made provisional arrangements with the Diocesan preferred contractor for work to begin next Tuesday, 30th May (all things going well). It is hoped that repairs will be complete by Friday 2nd June. This means that the garden area and the approaches to the Op Shop will become a worksite and access will be restricted except for the contractor’s employees. As a consequence:  

  • The Op Shop and Garden areas will be closed from Tuesday to Friday inclusive.

  • The Welcome Afternoon Tea planned for this Saturday, 27th May at 2pm, has been postponed.

  • Thursday morning services and other mid-week activities, including Food Bank, are cancelled until the repair is completed.


Unfortunately, while it will be minimised as far as possible, there will be some damage to the garden area as a result of excavation of trenches for the new cable. The cable route goes under the Memorial Garden, but the contractor is hoping to complete that section of the work without disturbance to the Memorial Garden.


Although we will be without power, the Executive resolved that worship this Sunday (28th May) will go ahead at the normal times of 8am and 9.30am. We will use service booklets (kindly printed by St Mark’s) rather than data projection but there’s little we can do in the way of heating, so rug up well!


Whilst it is clearly beyond our control, we apologise for the inconvenience caused by this damage. The Council Executive and Diocesan Office have worked together urgently to address the various issues that need to be dealt with to resolve the situation, and we ask for your understanding and co-operation as efforts continue to restore things to normal.
