Our Facilities

st-judes-bowral

St Jude’s is blessed to have a large property which includes an iconic two storied Rectory built in 1880, a beautiful Church building constructed in 1886 and a Sunday School Hall of similar vintage. There are extensive grounds incorporating an historic cemetery all set off with beautiful deciduous trees.

The new entrance foyer at St Jude'sHowever, these facilities did not meet the demands of a modern church family and St Jude’s has recently undertaken a significant re-development project to serve the needs of a growing and evolving Christian community well into the foreseeable future.

It takes into consideration the flow of people throughout the complex, including those in wheel chairs, and the needs of all ages throughout the complex.  It is functional, and sensitive to the heritage and environmental issues. Importantly, it will meet the ministry needs of St Jude’s well into the future.

Key features of the new design are listed below.
