St Luke’s Church

St Luke’s is a Victorian building which has been extensively updated. It was built to serve the rather rural area of ‘New Chesterton’, which was at that time surrounded by fields, allotments and orchards all the way out to Histon and continued to serve the rapidly developing area as a separate new parish until 1982, when the Parish of the Ascension was formed from the two neighbouring parishes of St Luke’s Chesterton and St Giles’ w St Peter’s.

In the neighbouring Victoria Road Congregational Church building was sold and demolished, and that congregation started to use St Luke’s Church regularly. Since 2005, the church community has been formed by the uniting of congregations from the Church of England and the United Reformed Church traditions into a Local Ecumenical Partnership, worshipping together.

After extensive refurbishment the Church building now comprises four community rooms in addition to the Church space. The community rooms are known as St Luke’s Church Centre.
