St Luke's Kentish Town
St Luke's was planted in 2011, reopening a redundant church, and since then we've loved seeing it grow into a thriving community in the heart of North London. Our vision is to be 'centred on Jesus, transforming North London, one life at a time.' You are so welcome to join the family here, we gather every Sunday at 10:30am and 6pm. If you'd like to explore and discuss life's big questions, come along to our next Alpha course. We're made up of smaller communities which we call Hubs, meeting midweek throughout North London to grow in faith and friendship. We also do loads in our community - if you'd like to serve to make a difference, find out more here. Please check out the rest of our website to find out more, connect with us on social media - but most importantly, come and say hello, we'd love to meet you!

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
As part of our commitment to being friendly and accessible to all sections of the community, we will ensure that we are doing all we can to welcome and be sensitive to the needs of people with dementia, their carers, families and friends. Once a month, at St Luke's on a Tuesday, we organise free lunches for the elderly who live in and around Kentish Town. Arriving at 11:00, we set up, serve food to about 30 members, and clear up to finish by 4.00pm. We chat to our members and create a relaxed and joyful atmosphere. Our members are quite elderly, isolated, and often ill or disabled. A significant number are living with dementia. As a result this project is a life-line for them. Our project is open to everyone regardless of origin or faith. By raising awareness about how, with help and encouragement, people can live well with dementia, we will add a new dimension to our Older People’s Project, while encouraging and enabling the many younger members of our congregation to get involved.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We do not foresee any significant challenges to delivering our actions.
Host one or more Dementia Friends information sessions for members of the congregation.
