St Jude

Welcome to the parish of St Jude, the parish church for Rekendyke and Laygate. A beautiful Victorian building, we stand in the central Anglican tradition of worship, where we welcome you whoever you are and whomever you love, with female priests and worship leaders, and several friendly and well-behaved dogs. We host an active children's Toddler group, a seniors' meetup group and many community parties and events in our accessible and well-appointed church hall.

The parish of Rekendyke is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Durham’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
