Outreach & Activities
There are various organisations which we try to support as well as special appeals.
ST LUKES OP SHOP
Almost hidden behind the church building the Op Shop is a treasure trove in the midst of Modbury! We are a place to buy that odd item, or just come and chat with our volunteers - who will even give you a cup of coffee!
LUKE'S COMMUNITY GARDEN
Luke's community garden is at the front and thee along the side of the Op shop. Come along to a gardening session or just rest in the on one of the many seats in the garden.

Mens group is held in the balcony room at St Lukes on the second Thursday of the month except January. It starts at 7:30pm and finishes at 9pm. It has no formal structures, no office holders, no funds and no stated objectives beyond meeting, enjoying each others company and sharing whatever refreshments those attending feel like bringing. The only formality observed is to close punctually at 9pm with the Prayer of Grace.
PASTORAL CARE AT ESTIA AGED CARE HOPE VALLEY
We are a worship team bringing Anglican service with reserved sacrament to the elderly residents at the aged care facility. The service is a revised service for Lay Ministers - it is informal but traditional including 3 hymns, a short homily and the Prayer Book version of the Lord's Prayer. The residents love the service and we all have lots of fun and it is a delight and privilege for us to be with them.
SCHOOLS MINISTRY GROUP - supporting Pastoral Care Workers in schools
A Pastoral Care Worker(PCW), is a trained, experienced and passionate person who is employed by the Schools Ministry Group(SMG) to work in a school community under the National Schools Chaplaincy Program. PCWs are positive role models who tirelessly show God's love, care and compassion whilst providing pastoral and practical support to students, parents and staff across the breadth and length of the school community life. There are PCWs working in many of the state schools in the Tea Tree Gully area.
Currently in recess.
