Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of Saint Luke was created in 1904 from parts of the parishes of Saint Mary's and Saint Paul's. The patronage was held by subscribers who had paid for the construction of the church, before passing to the Church Patronage Society. The church building was constructed in 1905, while a hall was added in 1937. The parish merged with Saint Paul's in 1985, becoming Saint Paul with Saint Luke, and the church was demolished in 2006.
