Here you will find food for your soul and here you will drink the cup of new life.  

Welcome to St. Lukes, a 130-year-old start-up in the heart of Ballard!  We draw on ancient Christian practices of worship, prayer and service in a rapidly changing world.  Most of our 100 members have become part of the community in the past 5 years. Despite the limitations imposed by COVID-19, we continue to live out our vision, “to form Beloved Community, which is welcoming and diverse, with Christian worship and service at the heart.”

We are a gathering place for rich and poor, housed and unhoused, young and old, those familiar with Episcopal tradition and those with no church background at all.  We enthusiastically affirm the participation of women and the LGBTQIA+ community in all sacramental rites, membership, and leadership.

For ways to stay connected or to get involved you can view our list of links below or read our latest newsletter.

We gather for worship in person and via Facebook Live every Sunday at 10:00 am.  Masks are strongly recommended, not required.  We have installed air filtration units to ensure that the air in the sanctuary is turned over regularly.

While Sunday worship is at the center of our identity, there are so many ways to be part of this community.  We are gardeners, volunteers who feed the hungry daily, students, partners in caring for our neighbors and so much more.  There is a place for you at the table.

July 7, 2024 — The Rev Canon Britt Olson

The fact that Jesus continued faithfully to live into his identity and to serve and love others in spite of opposition and rejection can be an encouragement to us when we experience similar criticism and hostility.  We are not to be surprised at disbelief, distrust, rejection and failure.  We follow a Savior who took on the worst of human behavior on the cross and by his love and God’s power transformed despair into hope, sorrow into joy and death into life.… Read More
