About Us

St. Luke's Church is a vibrant church with a growing congregation, active choir and active Junior Church which operates during term time. On the first Sunday of the month there is All Age Worship for children and adults together.
St Luke’s Church was built in 1889, following a temporary ‘iron church’ in Sandycombe Road, to serve the growing population of the parish with the coming of the District Line. The large Victorian Church in the Avenue was redesigned in 1983 to function as a dual purpose building: a smaller church in the former chancel area, and the former nave as community space, with a second hall constructed in the lofty roof area. These areas of the building are currently occupied by the Kew Community Trust (see below).
