The church has a plot in the local community’s
King Henry’s Walk Garden.
Church members are encouraged to go along to plant and weed the church plot and whilst there be a witness to the church. They also participate and help at events e.g. the pensioner’s strawberry tea, the various fairs – summer, autumn, winter and also be on duty when the garden is open to the public.
And goodness is the harvest that is produced from the seeds the peacemakers plant in peace (James 3:18).
Within the parish there are the Metropolitan Benefit Societies’ Almshouses (MBSA) situated on Balls Pond Road.
The scheme has a mixture of 28 flats and cottages around three sides of a quadrangle with a central meeting hall and provides accommodation for older people who are in need. The vicar of St Jude & St Paul’s Church is normally appointed as a trustee of the MBSA charity.
