St. Hilda's – St. Luke's is blessed with a number of active groups which work within the church and in partnership with the greater community to assist those in need; the Caring Cupboard Food Bank, Grace Cafe, The Southwestern Ontario Regional Forensic Unit, Girl Guides and Rotary Youth Interact Club are some of our partners.

The ACW (Anglican Church Women) welcomes all women in the parish. We meet the second Thursday of every month (except July and August) at 10:00 am in the Fellowship Room at the church. Our meetings start with prayer and a short devotion and then on to business. We do several fundraisers — the proceeds go to the church and to support community needs and agencies. We are a friendly, caring group who in the midst of our work find time for fun and fellowship. Please feel free to come to any of our meetings. We will welcome you with open arms.

The Choir is an enthusiastic group of singers who meet on a weekly basis to lead our congregation in song and worship.

The Christian Education Dept. welcomes children and youth each Sunday and invites them to participate in special services and activities throughout the year. The Christmas Tree decorating party and the Easter egg hunt are two favourites. A Nursery is also available for young children.

The Ladies' Guild is a group of Women in fellowship fulfilling parish and community needs. We meet at the church at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of every month except July and August.

The Altar Guild prepares the altar and church for weekly worship. We work in teams and are always happy to welcome anyone (women and men) who wishes to be part of this important ministry. We meet several times a year. New members are always included in a team so that they learn what needs to be done. If you are interested in this service to your church please contact Nancy Lovelock, President of the Altar Guild or Carole Brown, Secretary.

The Men's Group meets periodically for fellowship, fund raising and assistance to other groups in the church. They also take responsibility for indoor and outdoor maintenance of the church. During special events they willingly assist with visitor parking.
