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.
