St Jude’s in Carlton is now one of the largest and most diverse parishes in the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne. But, like the suburb of which it is a part, the church has gone through hard times as well as good times.
People of the Risen King tells the story of the founding, early growth, faltering, survival and renewal of this inner-suburban Christian community over the last one hundred and fifty years. Placing the church in it local setting and in a wider social, theological and diocesan context, Elizabeth Willis recounts the history of this remarkable parish and describes how the congregation and its leaders have, during recent decades, made a significant contribution to church life in Melbourne and beyond.
