St Luke's Church Eccleshill

Visitors are always welcome.

As the local Church of England church in the Eccleshill area (in Bradford, West Yorkshire), we are here to bring the good news of Jesus to the local people, help them express worship and praise to God in his name, and together make a positive difference for good in the lives of local people by our service to the community. This is a high ideal ... and we are a work-in-progress rather than a finished product. Bear with us!

Our building is located about two miles out of the city centre on the A658 Harrogate Road on the way to the airport, before you reach the city limits. We have an unusual concrete open tower, dating from the 1960's and replacing the previous traditional spire which had to be taken down when it became unstable. 

On Sundays we have a service at 10am followed by refreshments, except that on the first Sunday of each month our main service is at 10.30am and is preceded by a said service at 8am.  We only started this pattern in 2020: previously we used to have a traditional service followed by a coffee break and then a modern service.  The main advantage of the two services was that it allowed us a great variety in the style of what we did, and a challenge for the next few months is to maintain the variety whilst carrying everyone with us.  We aspire to cater for everyone who wants to follow Jesus, no matter what their preferred style of "church service" might be.

  • Wednesdays in Lent

    During Lent we are holding midweek Communion services on Wednesdays at 11.30am, followed by lunch (around 12.15pm) of soup and bread and cheese. We hope to look at six elements of "trying to live a holy life" (as detailed in March's Link Magazine), and we invite you to join us.

  • Roadworks on the roundabout

    As part of the roadworks on the roundabout, the lay-by outside church is partly coned off to prevent parking (we're told the roadworks will last until the end of February 2020). We remind everyone that we can use the school car park on Sundays, so please park there instead.

    The roads immediately next to the roundabout are to be closed overnight from 9pm to 6.30am on Mon 24th February 2020 and about the next ten days to allow resurfacing of the roads to take place. We understand there will still be pedestrian access to the church and to Fagley Lane.

  • Fault on the vicarage phone

    As at 20th February 2020 we are concerned that there is a fault on the vicarage telephone landline: callers have reported that they dial the number, it rings a few times and then cuts off. In the vicarage it seems as if the caller has rung off before we have had a chance to get to the phone.  We can only apologise and assure you that we are trying to get the problem fixed.

  • Not on Blueyonder

    On 15th September 2018 the vicar had a big computer crash. Since then he hasn't been able to access the address that he used to use, so please make sure you contact him at the vicar@... address on the "Contact us" page and NOT at the Blueyonder one.
