Who Are We?

We are an evangelical church located north-west of the town of Stone in Staffordshire and are part of the Diocese of Lichfield. St Luke’s is the parish church of Tittensor and is part of a group of parishes called a benefice led by our Rector Revd Dr Stephen McKenzie. Under Stephen’s leadership we are a church family that includes and welcomes people from every age and walk of life. We are united, however, in knowing and joyfully following Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. The Bible is central to our teaching. We welcome all those who wish to explore the meaning of personal Christian faith for themselves and who want to grow in deeper relationship and service of God. At our services children and families are very welcome. Midweek, we run a wide range of groups and courses which offer the opportunity to explore Christian faith further and to celebrate the fun and joy of belonging to a Christian family.
    

What we believe

The Bible
We believe the Bible is inspired by God and is the authority on which we base our faith, conduct and doctrine.
The Trinity
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth as Savior of the world.
Salvation
We believe Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. We believe that salvation is found by placing our faith in what Jesus did for us on the cross. We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again.
Water Baptism
We believe water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Communion
We believe in the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering what the Lord Jesus did for us on the cross.
Growing Relationship
We believe every believer should be in a growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God's Word, yielding to the Holy Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ.

History of the Church


St. Luke’s is a traditional style church built by the Duke of Sutherland and designed by Thomas Roberts,one of his estate architects. It retains its original wooden pews although part of the front of the nave has been opened up with staging for special activities such as drama, interviews and dance.

The foundation stone was laid by the Duchess of Sutherland in 1880 in the presence of HRH the Prince of Wales. The church was consecrated in 1882 and is built of brick and stone. There is seating for 120 people.  An adjacent church hall was added in 1969 and has recently been altered to include access and toilet facilities for the disabled.

The church building is looked after by an active church fabric committee and is in good repair. The church tower has been recently renovated and houses a peal of 6 bells. These are played on a carillon by one person and are rung for every service. 

The churchyard is open, well maintained, and has a special area laid aside for the interment of cremated remains.
