The bells

Photograph by Michael Eleftheriades

St Jude's has two bells acquired in August 1932 from the demolished church of All Hallows the Great, Upper Thames Street although only one is used. It was forged in 1670 from the metal of the medieval bells melted during the Great Fire of London in 1666.

From our own correspondents

Portia Walker and Chris Stephen in Misrata, Libya.

Portia reports: Saved a cat's life today. Or rather made [interpreter] Osama go and do it. We were at the frontline and the rebels had put a tent under a canopy of webbing. A little striped cat had climbed to the top of the tent and then got tangled in the webbing. I complained to the rebels and they started prodding it with rifle butts. I protested so much that Osama shimmied up the tent pole and cut it free. The rebels cheered and one turned to me and said "that man, he is like the nato, and the cat, he is the rebel." Then Osama fell off the tent pole.

Visitors from St Pancras

This afternoon we had visitors from the Old St Pancras Church and St Pancras Community Centre Older Peoples’ Project. They kindly brought with them a birthday cake for the St Jude's Centenary and sang Happy Birthday to the Church. They were accompanied by Fr Bruce Batstone and Fr Matthew Duckett.
