The Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew is a historic Episcopal church at 520 Clinton Avenue between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. It was built in 1888-91 as St. Luke's Protestant Episcopal Church and was designed by John Welch in the Romanesque Revival style. The AIA Guide to New York City describes the building's "great facade" as "Eclecticism gone berserk," while the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission's Guide to New York City Landmarks calls it "one of the grandest ecclesiastical buildings in Brooklyn."
The congregation of St. Luke's was founded in 1841 following the failure of Trinity Church. The congregation's building eventually grew to be the largest in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island. It merged with the St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in 1943, and the Church of St. Michael and St. Mark in 1993. The St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church was a popular church, that was established in 1859 at McDonough Street and Tompkins Avenue.
In the early morning of December 23, 2012, the building was damaged by a fire.
