Welcome to St Luke’s, the parish church for the village of East Morton and the surrounding area. St Luke’s brings together a wide variety of people who want to celebrate the goodness of God and learn more about following in the way of Jesus.


Who's Who at St Luke's


The ministry team at St Luke's is shared with the parish of St Mary's, Riddlesden and is made up of the Vicar, Rev'd Canon Tony Walker; our Curate, Rev'd Gareth Howles; plus two Readers, Ruth Copping and Sal Browning, and our Reader-in-training Cathy Thornton. Rev'd Jenny Ramsden and Rev'd Andrew Tawn take services from time to time. Their work is assisted by the church wardens and many fantastic volunteers.


Our administrator is Lee Senior; he can be contacted at
