Why ‘Altitude’?

At nearly 300 metres above sea level, St Luke’s Church is higher than Big Ben and nearly as high as the Eiffel Tower! Height, particularly in relation to mountains, is a recurring theme in the Bible. For example, Moses received the 10 Commandments atop Mount Sinai and Jesus retreated up a mountain to pray. 

‘Altitude’ resonates with our identity as a Church due to our literal altitude and also the symbolic altitude of God. It’s also, we think, a cool name!

On Sundays and during the week, there are lots of exciting things happening for children, young people and families: 

  • Sunday mornings: 4 lively groups for under 18's during our services.
  • Youth clubs: 2 youth clubs for children up to Y9 on Friday’s after school
  • Bible study: 3 groups midweek including one for Y11+. 
  • Messy Church: our monthly Sunday afternoon service for families with time for crafts, games and a meal.
  • Oxygen: a monthly cafe style service on a Sunday evening with drinks and snacks.
  • Special events: We run special events for children & young people at Christmas, Easter, in the Summer and at Halloween as well as occasional one-off events - check out the 'what’s on' page.

All the Altitude groups and activities are coordinated by our Youth Worker & Children and Families Worker and staffed by an enthusiastic and committed team of volunteers, all of whom have been vetted in line with our child protection policy.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of our work with children, families and young people, we’d love to hear from you!
