St Luke's Church Kew
Where all God’s children are welcome
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).
Kew Community Trust
The Kew Community Trust runs The Avenue Halls and The Avenue Club in Kew. It is an Independent Trust and a registered charity. Hall hire fees contribute directly to the running and up-keep of The Avenue Club, a social club for the whole community, but especially for the elderly. For hall hire details please visit their website.
