Welcome

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. 
Our parish priest is the Rev. Fr. Gregory Verissimo. 
We are a small and welcoming community.


The church dates back to the early 1900s. 
The parish serves a diverse community of 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, see our events page.

 Please explore the website, it serves as a guide / information hub, but most of all, please 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 center of London.

synod logo

Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has invited the Catholic Church across the world to begin a journey of listening attentively to the Lord and to each other. We want to deepen our understanding of what it means to live together, in union with Christ, as fellow disciples called to announce His Gospel. This experience of encounter is called a Synod and follows a Synodal process. The word Synod comes from two Greek words which mean ‘journeying forward on the way together,’ the Way who is the Lord Jesus, our Truth and our Life. Cf. John 14:6
