About Saint Luke’s Church

In central Toowoomba, Rangeville, and East Toowoomba, St Luke’s Anglican Parish provides for the heart of the community with three worship centres. Our Christian community, which is a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the Anglican Church of Australia, and the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane, seeks to share the love of God as experienced in Jesus Christ. Additionally, we aim to grow together to live with integrity, compassion, faithfulness, and love.

Currently in a vacancy and actively seeking a new vicar, St Luke’s is a parish church affiliated with the Church of England. It is a place where individuals can freely express their faith, or even lack thereof, without judgment. We aim to create a community that embraces and welcomes everyone, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, disability, personal history, or religious convictions.

In 1958, the stone wall and gates were constructed to commemorate the centenary of the Wellington Diocese. As part of this memorial, three trees were planted: a kauri tree for Bishop Abraham, the first Bishop of Wellington, a puriri tree for Bishop Wallis, and a totara tree for Bishop Hadfield. The church underwent significant expansion in both 1977 and 1985, incorporating elements of the original structure, such as the bell tower. Within the sanctuary, some windows depict Wiremu Parata and Octavius Hadfield. Wiremu Parata rests with his family on the north side of the church.
