OurParish

 

 

A warm welcome to St. Simon & St. Jude, we are the Roman Catholic Parish of Streatham Hill, South London. Our parish lies within the Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark.

Front of ChurchOur parish priest is Rev. Fr. Habte Ukbay.

We are a small and welcoming community, dating back to early 1900s. The present church began life as the Tulse Hill Catholic Mission, with the first Mass being celebrated on 27th July 1906.

The parish serves many diverse people of all ages and backgrounds. We come together, not only to pray, worship and share the sacraments together, but also to celebrate high feasts and social events, such as the summer barbecue, charity concerts  and the international lunch in October.

Our website is intended to serve as a guide and information hub to our parish and to help bring us further together as a community.

Please explore the website, but most of all, please do come and visit us at St. Simon & St. Jude R.C.

Join us in worship, prayer and thanksgiving to our Lord, and being a vibrant community in Christ at the centre of London.

IMPORTANCE NOTICE &/ UPDATE on the PARISH REFURBISHMENT, RESTORATION and  RENOVATION WORKS:

Dear parishioners and visitors to our parish church, ours is a small church with limited funding and income. Consequently, the church has been actively making planned savings over the past ten years, with a view to using these savings and (limited) funds for preserving and maintaining our church buildings for the long term, to benefit our community. 

Following a number of deliberations with parishioners and competent professionals from the parish, (a group comprised of architects, engineers, surveyors, electricians, designers and decorators - who are all sitting as members of the parish refurbishment team), a programme of works was identified and commenced. Please see our website for more details.

On 18th June 2018 we as a parish, embarked on the refurbishment works in the church, as you may now notice the works are nearing completion, it is envisaged that they will be fully completed in the next few months. Currently you will see that some of the chairs in the main body of the church have been removed while the seats and back rests are reupholstered. The kneelers have already been reupholstered and dampeners placed on their feet to reduce the noise when opening and or returning the kneelers to the closed position.

We will provide more details soon as soon as the works are completed, but for now it is our pleasure to include and publish some of the photographs which reflect the huge transformation the works have brought to the looks of the church. Please view the website for these updates in the coming weeks.

with sincere & grateful thanks Rev. Fr. Habte
