Who We Are

Welcome!  Join us as we grow in love for God and each other during this difficult time.

Tune in on Sundays at 11:15 for a live stream worship service -- and if that time doesn't work for you, you can always watch the video on our Facebook page afterwards.  Here's our most recent worship bulletin for your use.  After each Sunday's worship live stream, we will host a Zoom call-in "tea time" so that we can catch up with each other after worship like we have been in the habit of doing downstairs.  Click here to join on Sunday right after the worship live stream with a smartphone or computer, or call 669-900-6833 and use this meeting ID:  185 861 698.  Password is 2020.

Christian Formation in Community

We are blessed with video conference call technology that can create a remarkably intimate sense of in-person community, and we hope you'll join us in experiencing this new way of being together!

On Wednesdays from 6 to 7:30 pm, Fr. Colin will lead a 90-minute discipleship group. Click here to join with a smartphone or computer, or call 669-900-6833 and use this meeting ID:  759 510 526. Password is 2020. 

On Thursdays, Mtr. Laurel will lead a 30-minute prayer gathering from noon to 12:30 pm.  Click here to join with a smartphone or computer, or call 669-900-6833 and use this meeting ID: 717 584 493. Password is 2020.

On Sundays, we will be leading a book study on To Love as God Loves from 10 to 11 am.  Click here to join with a smartphone or computer, or call 669-900-6833 and use this meeting ID: 162 134 661. Password is 2020.

Grecia will be organizing a weekly youth gathering, and Dawn will be doing the same with the kids of St. Luke's. 

All these gatherings are open to YOU and will use Zoom conference calling.  Here are some helpful hints in joining a Zoom call.  It's best if you have access to a computer with a video camera or a smartphone, but you are able to call in as well using a regular phone.

Teaching

Be on the lookout every morning for a daily video from us reflecting on some aspect of the Bible or theology!  We will post this video first on Facebook, and later on our Church@Home blog on our website.

Do take good care of yourselves, stay at home if at all possible, and let us know how we can pray for and serve you at this time.  We will get through this together, but it will not be without hardship -- and Christ, who knew great suffering, walks beside us now and always!

Who Are We?

St. Luke's North Park is a Christian community seeking justice and healing in this colorful and dynamic neighborhood of San Diego.  Our congregation began in 1923 with the arrival of All Saints' chapel building on 30th and Gunn Streets, and became known over the decades to follow for its service to others (as with the organization of the first school for children with autism in the city) and for healing (the founder of the International Order of St. Luke, John Gayner Banks, was St. Luke's first rector).  

In the past fifteen years God has led us to a new blessing: to serve as one of the primary cultural centers for South Sudanese Americans in the city, and more recently, for Congolese refugees. Worshipping with us is a joyous and memorable experience!  We also are proud to host sixteen twelve-step support meetings on campus each week and look for new ways to serve our local recovery community; and we are grateful to host Uptown Community Service Center and its good work with the unhoused persons of North Park.  We are also proud partners with RefugeeNet and the International Rescue Committee on an urban farming and commercial kitchen project.

We dream to be a place where all people can enter into uncomfortable and brave spaces with others different than themselves -- different races, ethnicities, classes, creeds, sexual orientations, and gender identities -- and find their perspectives and hearts transformed.  We follow a God who loves each of us especially for who we are and desires that every single human among us has all she or he needs to thrive in this world.  Until that day comes, we will work alongside God's powerful Spirit to do justice in this hurting world and help all people find a loving and dignified home.  We are members of the Episcopal Church, a denomination striving imperfectly and sincerely to offer this radical hospitality to all.
