St Luke's Church Eccleshill

Because of the Coronavirus precautions, the Church of England has directed all parish churches to suspend Church Services. There are currently no services at St Luke's.

But you can join us for some YouTube videos instead of the worship we would have done in church. These are all on our YouTube Channel, and the latest are:

  • Worship for Sunday 5 July: Part 1,
  • Worship for Sunday 5 July: Part 2,
  • Worship for Sunday 5 July: Part 3, and
  • Worship for Sunday 5 July: Part 4.

Our worship usually goes live at 2am on the day in question. You can also find daily services of Morning Prayer, and some Sunday services for previous occasions there.

As the local Church of England church in the Eccleshill area (in Bradford, West Yorkshire), we normally hold church services every Sunday morning, and our building is open at various times during the week for community activities ... but all that has ceased because we are all asked to stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus. Please bear with us!

We also normally produce and circulate a parish magazine - "The Link" - and April's, May's, June's and July's editions would normally have been out now.  April's was completely written, except that the rotas and diary pages for what was happening are of course pointless for the moment, and the provisions we are making during the Coronavirus precautions keep having to be changed because of new guidance from the Government or from the Bishops!  However, even if it were printed, we couldn't distribute it while we are all staying at home in isolation, and we have not yet been given permission for our distributors to put things through people's letter boxes!  So please bear with us, and we promise that we'll find a way of getting a magazine out as soon as we can.


At the time of writing, the use of the building as a Foodbank Distribution Centre for the Bradford North FoodBank on Thursdays (11am to 1.30pm) is continuing.  But we feel obliged to point out that we can't guarantee this will still be true by next Thursday!  And please remember that people can't just turn up and expect food - you need a voucher from a referral agent and you will not receive any food without one.

  • Opening our building for worship


    We are taking our first steps towards opening our building for public worship again on Sunday 12th July 2020.  For further details see the page called "Coronavirus" in the left-hand column of this page.


  • Fault on the vicarage phone


    Around 20th February 2020 we were concerned that there was a fault on the vicarage telephone landline: callers reported that they dialed the number, it rang a few times and then cut off. In the vicarage it seemed as if the caller has rung off before we have had a chance to get to the phone.  So far as we can tell this problem has been resolved - but if it recurs please be patient with us, try some other way of contacting us, and let us know of your difficulties when you do get through. We can only apologise for the inconvenience.


  • Not on Blueyonder


    On 15th September 2018 the vicar had a big computer crash. Since then he hasn't been able to access the @blueyonder.co.uk 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.
