welcome to st jude & st paul’s church, mildmay

We are a Church of England parish on the Islington / Hackney border, where all are welcome. We serve a local area renowned for its long history of diversity and our congregation broadly reflects the varied population. Our services are available online through our YouTube channel, and you would be very welcome to come and worship God with us!

family crafts and fun

We work in partnership with local schools to invite families with primary school age children to fun, creative and spiritual activities. We create and curate beautiful craft in the church garden which blesses the community we are part of.

Do enjoy these photos of our Christmas Sparkle and Autumn Thanksgiving events, and the Poppy Field planted by children of St Jude and St Paul’s Primary School in November.

We are exploring the theme of Hope through the season of Lent and looking forward to Easter. The next event on Tuesday 30th March will be a Neighbourhood Easter Hunt - do join us at the church garden after school from 3pm and look out for signs of Hope in our community!
