Tales from the Field
an oral history project
Over our first 200 years, St Luke’s has been blessed with a congregation whose composition reflects the diversity and dimension of Village culture.
The history of the Parish is entwined with its unique location and the people of all faiths and walks of life who have gravitated to our community and found both a physical place and a spiritual space within to be who they are.
Recounted by both clergy and community, our narratives reflect who we are individually and who we have become collectively by association with each other.
As we celebrate the Bicentennial, we will be posting 200 Tales that illustrate the social history of St Luke’s over the years through personal account and observation. These are the tales we tell and the stories we’ve been told.
As we create the next 200 years together, we want to hear your side of our story. To record your experiences at St Luke’s as a living history of our times so that future generations can engage with an archive of anecdotes that chronicles the many and varied lives of St. Luke in the Fields.
