Building Vision at St Jude’s
Our desire is to serve the future generations of St Jude’s and the Diocese of Melbourne with a building that is welcoming, engaging, exible, and speaks of the hope of Jesus for our world.
We want our facilities to serve as a hub for all our ministries: our education programs, the congregations that meet in Carlton, our Parkville campus and our Estates ministry, and our future church planting dreams.
Our Vision is to be a church for the whole person, the whole community, the whole city, and the whole world and we proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
A church for the whole person
We wish to be a church that ministers (through our programs including teaching and pastoral care) and welcomes the whole person, regardless of age or ability.
A church for the whole community
Due to its location, St Jude’s is positioned to reach many diverse communities, including Melbourne University and RMIT University, the Carlton Housing Estates, the Melbourne CBD and the increasing number of families living in the inner north.
A church for the whole city
Due to St Jude’s history, location and reach of parishioners (from over 140 postcodes), we see a key part of our vision to serve the whole city and Diocese. Apart from our own programs, we hope to use our building to support other local parishes as well as hosting diocesan and other larger events such as, training, conferences, etc.
A church for the whole world
St Jude’s has a wonderful history of training and sending people to theological college and the mission field, indeed all 17 of our current mission partners are home grown. We also have an increasing mission to the substantial number of overseas students who attend Melbourne University and RMIT University.
St Jude’s has been the home for a vibrant, living church community for generations. We have seen wonderful growth.
We ask you now to join us as we seek God’s future for St Jude’s.
