Public Worship suspended At St Luke's during Lockdown 2021
The PCC unanimously agreed to continue to suspend public worship to ensure that we keep everyone safe. A day later we received a letter from Cllr Hazel Simmons leader of Luton Council requesting all places of worship to voluntary close for communal worship due to rising infection rate in Luton and the pressure this is already putting on the L&D. Personally I feel that this confirmed that we made the right decision. Keep safe and keep well and read for details about online services and support.
