St Judes’ 150th anniversary publication, Summoned by Bells, is not an ordinary parish history. It explores the church’s history as a part of the history of Randwick and indeed Australia, linking it to social and political developments, wars, depressions, and notable personalities.

It is a beautifully produced glossy volume containing over 200 plates, some in colour and others in black and white. Anyone from browser to serious researcher will find this book to be both interesting and useful.

You can purchase a copy of the book by coming to the church office (the cost is $40).

If you would like the book sent to you, the cost is $50. There are two ways to pay.


Please post us your cheque, together with a note saying, “Please send me a copy of Summoned by Bells” and include the address to which you would like the package sent.
