Saint Luke’s is the chapel in Macclesfield District General Hospital. As a church we provide one morning service a month, at 11:00 am on the fourth Sunday of every month.
The HTH team meets in the chapel at 10:00 am and then goes around the wards to invite any patients who are well enough to come to the service in the chapel, or pray with those who are not well enough. We generally collect patients in wheelchairs or walk to the chapel with them. We also invite relatives and staff members to join us.
We also collect the names of those who cannot leave the wards but would like to be mentioned in prayer during the service. The service generally lasts around 40 minutes and includes hymns (usually a recorded track) a Bible reading, a short talk and prayer. We then take patients back to the wards in time for their lunch.
