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. We have a Victorian era building which we are in the process of renovating as we explore new possibilities, and you would be very welcome to come and worship God with us!

st jude and st paul’s @ home

Everyone is welcome to join us in worship, reflection, and prayer on YouTube from 10.30am each Sunday for half an hour.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have advised that public services should be put on hold until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We are collecting spiritual and cultural resources for being @ home and will update as we find more - suggestions welcome!

daily prayer

We meet to pray each weekday. You are welcome to join on our YouTube channel from 9.15am to 9.30am Mondays to Fridays. If you would like us to pray for something please let us know.

This Lent, we hope both adults and children might engage in God’s plea for us to “Care for Creation”. It is an opportunity for us to rebuild our relationship with our planet, and in turn with the God who is Lord of everything.”

Archbishop Justin Welby & Archbishop John Sentamu

You can join our #LiveLent journey with these daily reflections.

The team consists of the Rev James Hill, John Tasker, John Wilson, Sola Olukoya-Daniel, and the churchwardens: Dennis Nwanze and Lindsey Cordwell. We can be contacted here.
