Saint Jude's Church was constructed between 1842 and 1846. It was designed by Henry Clutton in a Romanesque style, and seated 1,110. A district was assigned in 1844, taken from the parish of Saint Matthew. By 1858 the church supported a young men's association, provident society and library. Between 1892 and 1896 money was raised to found an institute and soup kitchen. Mission services and open air services were also held. By 1914 the church was supporting brigades, temperance classes, clubs, a penny bank and holidays for mothers and children. The church was damaged by enemy action in 1940 and demolished. The parish was merged with Saint James the Great (P72/JSG) in 1951.
