Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1849 the chapel of the Royal Philanthropic Society's School was purchased to become the Church of Saint Jude, Southwark. It was consecrated in 1850 and a parish was assigned to it from the parish of Saint George the Martyr, Southwark (P92/GEO). Saint Jude's Schools were built adjoining the church in Colnbrook Street.

In 1898 and 1899 Saint Jude's Church was rebuilt on an east - west alignment instead of north - south as formerly. The vestry of the original church was retained and used as an addition to the School.

Saint Jude's Church was declared redundant in 1980. The congregation now worship at the church of Saint George the Martyr, Southwark
