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!
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.
St Jude’s is part of the First Fridays Youth Church in Islington, and take a group to monthly outdoor events at St Saviour’s Church in Finsbury Park. They’re great fun - do get in contact if you are interested. The next event is Friday 1st October from 6.30-8.30pm.
The church building is open from 10.30am every Sunday and services are live streamed from the church building.
Everyone is welcome to join us in worship, reflection, and prayer from 10.45am to 11.45am each Sunday. Services are also available on our YouTube channel.
We meet to pray several times a week. You are welcome to join on our YouTube channel for morning prayer from 9.15am to 9.45am on Wednesdays and Fridays.
A calendar of all events is available here.
