EXCITING NEWS FOR THE FUTURE OF ST LUKE'S
The following was printed in the ANGLICAN E-NEWS on 20 March 2019:

 

“Last Wednesday evening Standing Committee completed a decision making process involving the Operations Management Board (which governs the Anglican Centre), the Church Property Trustees, the Anglican Care Trust Board and the Parish of Christchurch St. Luke’s. As a result we are committed to building a combined Anglican Centre and St Luke’s Spirituality Centre on the St Luke’s site, corner Manchester and Kilmore Streets. Design work is beginning and it is my hope that with a fair wind through the consenting process we can be located again in the inner city by early 2021 and St Luke’s can be back on their home turf.”
