St Jude's Church is an Anglican parish church in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton and is one of the first complete polychromatic brick churches built in Australia. The church was opened in 1866 as a temporary wooden building, but was rebuilt as a Gothic-polychrome building between 1866 and 1874.
St Jude's Carlton is linked to St Jude's Hartwith (North Yorkshire UK) (Hartwith cum Winsley) which was dedicated to St Jude after refurbishment in 1891 at the request of parishioners who had emigrated to Australia and worshipped at St Jude's Carlton near Melbourne.

The stained glass window
The Melbourne Argus (page 5) of Monday 7 March 1892 reported, "A very fine stained glass window has been placed in St. Jude’s Church, Carlton, to the memory of John Richard Bathe Neale, Lygon Street, Carlton, by his parents, of Windsor. The subject is Christ at the Pool of Bethesda." The accompanying text is taken from John 5:8, "Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk."
