St. Jude's Church, Kensington

Brothers George and Henry Godwin designed this church, which was built 1867-70.

The alabaster reredos was carved by Thomas Earp and decorated with mosaics by Salviati and Burke in 1880.

The Lamb of God is surrounded on either side by two kneeling Evangelists in their symbolic forms.
