St Luke's Church is in Church Lane, Oakhanger, Cheshire, England. It is an active Anglican mission church in the parish of Christ Church, Alsager, the deanery of Congleton, the archdeaconry of Macclesfield, and the diocese of Chester.[1] The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.[2]


The building was originally a school-chapel with an attached master's house that was erected in 1870.[3]


St Luke's is constructed in red brick and stands on a blue brick plinth. It is roofed with blue tiles. The plan consists of a two-bay nave, a lower and narrower chancel, and a porch. On the ridge of the roof is a bellcote, set diagonally.[2] The windows have pointed arches and contain intersecting glazing bars.[3] Inside the church is an oak pulpit.[2] The altar incorporates a panel containing the figures of Faith, Hope, and Charity.[3]
