SUNDAY SERVICES AND OTHER VIDEOS

As the church comes back to the building for our in-person services, the above video Kim shows how the church building has changed slightly to ensure we keep everyone safe.

We are now open for a Sunday Morning Service at 10;30am though number who can be seated are reduced due to social distancing. Therefore, we are also now live-streaming the service via our YouTube Channel and Facebook each Sunday, also at 10.30am. For now, we are sorry, but we are unable to also hold our Sunday evening gatherings.

From the 4th October to the 1st November, our Vicar is bringing a preaching series following his Sabbatical on “Paul’s Letters and the new small Churches of the early 1st century”. That series is being archived as it progresses on a new Blog post here.

We are also very pleased to offer an option to access the Sunday Service but via a local phone call, especially for those without internet access or online experience.

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.
