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 are fully inclusive of women and the LGBTQIA community in our membership and leadership.

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

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.

We are open for worship Sunday mornings at 10am. No sign-up is necessary, just come! Please wear your face covering at all times to protect those who are not vaccinated.
