Our next Vicar

On 19th July it was announced that our next vicar will be Rev Dr. Matt Davis. We look forward to Matt joining us.


St Luke's church continues to be closed for some services. However, we are now able to hold a service of morning prayer at 09.30 on Sundays. Social distancing limits the numbers attending. The meeting room, and so toilets, remains closed.

Holy Communion is celebrated by a retired priest and his wife at 10.00 am each Sunday. We are invited to "join in" by reading the Holy Communion service from the Book of Common Prayer.

We have a time of joint worship at 11.45 for 12.00 noon via Zoom.

We regret that we are still not able to produce a printed parish magazine. An on-line version of the July magazine has been put on this website. (Takes a few seconds to download)

St Luke's has set up an email communication system to all members with internet access. We have a telephone tree so that all members are contacted regularly and have someone to call if needed.

Our lifeboat tea room was planned to reopen at 11.00 am on 1st May. It was not able to, but we hope that it may open sometime in the summer.

Tuesday lunches, along with all other public church activity, are suspended.

St Luke’s Church is a local member of the Sefton Dementia Action Alliance (DAA).

St. Luke's Church, Formby, greets you.

A very warm welcome to our website.

Here at St Luke’s Formby we are trying to put Jesus back in his rightful place in our lives. We hope you will drop by and spend a little time with us, but if you are unable to come to the church building our prayer is that you will spend some time looking at the claims of Jesus where you are and find in Him, the way, the truth, and the life.

We are a developing, worshipping, community in the beautiful small town of Formby. Surrounded by Pine Woods, it is not unusual to see the endangered Red Squirrel, along with many other parts of God's creation around our edges.

As a growing worshipping community we see our mission as to spread the love of Jesus Christ in word and deed. Our preaching has many aspects and styles delivered by a team of Lay Readers as well as Clergy.  We believe in all member ministry and are seeking ways in which all can develop their ministry as they are all vital for the kingdom of God.

We look forward to welcoming you to both our website and our community.


St Luke, Formby, takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding
