While new legislation would enable a Church to be open for public worship, St Jude’s Church Council have decided, with the new, more transmissible variant becoming dominant, that we need to join with all other parts of our community in locking down to maintain safety as a priority. To have someone fall ill when the end is in sight is not something we would ever want.
We are therefore moving all our Sunday worship online again until the lockdown ends. Please just search for us on Facebook or YouTube or visit our website at for details.
As soon as it is safe to do so, for all in our community, we will re-open the Church.

You can access all our services online via our YouTube Channel and Facebook

There will be local decisions made on many areas of ministry as not everything mentioned as potentially available or desirable will always be possible as local situations do always vary. Where anything has guidance to be stopped, we will be stopping it. If you need to check anything specific for St Jude’s Church, please go to our Contact Us page to get in touch.
