About this Space

Saint Luke’s Church is the perfect location to host a wedding, concert or performance. It’s also suitable for community events, theatre, art exhibitions and many other functions. Situated minutes from Remuera and Newmarket with free parking, hosting your event here could not be more convenient. We're a lively community consisting of many different groups and individuals who gather for a great variety of reasons. We seek to be a nurturing community and we recognise and value the diversity of the many people who are part of our Community and use our premises. We aim to meet the needs of all who would like to share and enjoy our community buildings, church and other resources. One of our pillars is music and we love hosting all types of concerts - from choral to pop bands.

The Church is a beautiful stone gothic building. Stunning stained glass windows surround the space, filling it with a glorious light and ambience. The church space is ideal for hosting regular or one off activities and concerts such as dance, drama, singing and music. It could be used for community meetings, art exhibitions or speaking sessions. The natural acoustics and ambience make it an ideal space for concerts and choirs. We’ve hosted rock bands to orchestras and are open to all types of music in our space.

The church space has original wooden pews for seating that can face around a central space or to the altar. There is a carpeted area at the back that works well for groups that need larger space.
