In 1966, the parishes of St Luke’s on Old Street and St Giles’ Cripplegate joined together to form a single community in the heart of London after St Luke's was forced to close with structural damage. The united congregation is still thriving today.
Join us as we celebrate 50 years of community spirit, with afternoon tea, building tours, performances, singing and a procession to St Giles’ for a celebratory service. Everyone’s invited!
