Why Two Churches?

One parish, same overall Vicar and we do many things together (eg our youth work), so why are there two churches here?

St Luke's Church

St Luke's is the Parish church, established in the 50's as Cranham began to grow from a tiny hamlet to an established large village. The parish now has around 13,000 residents - more than enough for any one church to try and serve effectively.

Moor Lane Church

In the 80's, a church building became available at the other side of the parish and the decision was made to 'plant' a congregation into it. Since then, Moor Lane Church has grown and thrived and serves its part of Cranham effectively as well as being part of the parish-wide ministry.
