Making Jesus the heart of Southsea

St Jude’s has, for a long time, been the church at the very heart of Southsea. Our spire can be seen from the sea, and for many years was used to help navigate ships into Portsmouth harbour. As we enter into this new season of life together, we believe our purpose is to Make Jesus the heart Southsea.

Our vision is to Make Jesus the heart of Southsea - we will do this through Growing Faith, Offering Hope and Sharing God's Love. You can find out more about this on the vision page of our website.
