Please reach out with any prayer requests, comments, or questions. We would love to hear from you!
We invite you come and worship with us on Sunday mornings. We trust you will find St. Jude's to be an orthodox, open, and caring fellowship. We sincerely believe that God will accept you wherever you are in your faith journey and lead you where He wants you to be.
We use the beautiful words in The Book of Common Prayer to help guide us to praise God, confess and receive forgiveness of our sins, affirm the faith handed down from the Apostles and receive food for our souls through Holy Communion. Sermons last about 15 minutes and are always based on the Word of God read aloud during the service. The 8:00am service is a quiet service with the traditional language of Rite I. The 10:30am service has music and the more contemporary language of Rite II. Each service lasts approximately one hour.
Nursery for little ones is available from 9:00am to 12:00pm but you are welcome to bring your child of any age to worship in the church. Attire is entirely up to you.
Our church follows a rich liturgy that invites and encourages active participation and engagement. Accordingly, there are many regular opportunities to serve and aid in the worship of the church - from acolytes, to choir members, to lectors and ushers. If you are interested in serving or in finding out more about worship at St. Jude's, please contact the church office at (843) 549-1050.
Crucifers carry the cross to lead the worship procession in and out of the church as a symbol of “following the cross” wherever Christ leads us. Torchbearers carry candles to symbolize Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. Servers assist the priest at the altar.
Groups of parish members serve on a rotating schedule to prepare and tend the worship space on and around the altar. Other duties include polishing the brass and silver, caring for the linens and helping with special services such as weddings and funerals.
The choir - under the leadership of Organist and Choir Master David Martin - provides our Sunday worship with traditional Anglican hymns and other music from various faith backgrounds. Choir rehearsal is held on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Everyone is welcome to join.
Lectors read an Old Testament lesson from the lectern at the 10:30am service on Sunday mornings. LEMS read lessons from Holy Scripture, lead the congregation in the Prayers of the People, serve the chalice of wine at the altar during Holy Eucharist, and may take Communion to the home bound.
Ushers greet people as they enter the church, bring the bread and wine to the altar, pass the Offering Basins and bring them to the altar and guide people from the pews to the altar rail during Holy Eucharist.
