We want to grow our community so more people may come to know the joy of being a disciple of Jesus Christ.
“We are a Growing Church for a Growing City”
St Luke’s has been in Albury for over 75 years, and many of our members are well known in the town and local region. We have all ages worshipping with us, from infants to a rich collection of over nineties, all of whom enjoy our blended style of worship and focus on being engaged relationally with one another. We’d love to see new people join our community, and we will always put on a smile and a g’day. When you visit us, make sure you join us for morning tea, which is something our people know how to do really well.
We are intentional about being a growing church within the large, expanding and growing city of Albury, New South Wales.
This means we are intentional about growth. We want to grow individually and collectively as disciples of Jesus Christ. We want to grow our community so more people may come to know the joy of being a disciple of Jesus Christ. We want to help other communities grow, so together more people come to know Jesus and the unconditional love the Father has for them.
The current site and community of St Luke’s formed in 1966 with the amalgamation of two former Lutheran synods. It has been instrumental in developing new ministries, including Lutheran Aged Care – Albury, the largest provider of its kind in the region, Australian Lutheran World Service, the international community aid and support arm of the LCA, and new churches such as St Peter’s Lavington.
Our church building on Guinea Street was built in 1938. It was enlarged and given a modern front in 1967 and further renovations were made in 2002. Behind the church is a well-appointed hall. Next door to the church we have FRONTIER house, a residence for our church planting / mission practitioner training program. Next door to that, on the corner of Guinea and Macauley Streets, is St Luke's House, our residential community space and learning hub for FRONTIER and other ministry support services.
Today St Luke’s is one of the “sending churches” in the LCA’s Church Planting Initiative, the home of FRONTIER, a church planter traineeship program, and a growing church within a growing rural city.
