LEARNINGOur Cause is Hope!
Christian Education is part of the promises we make at baptism – to continue in the apostles’ teaching as we seek and serve Christ in all persons.
KIDS @ St Jude’s
At St Jude’s we have a lively Sunday school program which meets during our 10:30 am celebration of Holy Eucharist. Sunday school meets in the Britton Room. One of the Sidespeople or Greeters will be able to help you get there. Parents are welcome to attend.
Under the direction of our coordinator Monique Hodge and her volunteers, our children use the SPARK curriculum to activate their faith.
Apart from learning the stories of the Bible they also learn more about Christian faith through visual media and crafts.
Sunday School is held each week from September – June
Adult Christian learning @ St Jude’s
Growing in faith each day together as a community is something we enjoy. We offer various opportunities for continued learning experiences to deepen our faith. Together we share our own experiences of God in our lives. Together we learn how others can inform how God continues to inspire humanity. Together we discover how God enriches our relationships through Scripture.

REEL FAITH @ ST JUDE’S
Each film will be shown in English with Spanish subtitles whenever that option is available.
The films this year are united by one wonderful thread: strong female characters. We travel the globe in our quest: from the wilds of Africa, to the Southern USA, on to WWII Germany, Elizabethan England, and the Scottish highlands – all these films show the breadth of our humanity in times of good and bad – provoking us to be more than we thought possible.
Come to the movies and discuss your faith!
There is no admission price – popcorn, licorice and other refreshments available.
The films will start at 3:30pm and will be shown in the Church Hall (basement) on our big screen.
