"St Jude’s, Tonk Street, now Hill Street in the City Centre, was a building of brick designed in Early English style by Orford & Nash, and consisting of a chancel, nave and aisles. It was a Commissioners' church. With a grant by the Commissioners of only £500, the bulk of the finance must have been raised elsewhere.

Building began in 1847, a parish already having been assigned out of those of St Martin's and St Philip's two years previously. Services were held in the National school in Pinfold Street until the church was consecrated in 1851. The church had 1300 sittings, of which 1000 were free. The parish was further enlarged out of St Martin's in 1885 serving a population of some 6000 people.

St Jude’s was the parish church of a district which included Greens Village, The Hinkleys, The Froggery and The Rookeries, districts of the very poorest parts of Birmingham. From the mid-18th to the mid-19th century, this was a notorious slum area off Hill Street of crowded back-to-back houses many occupied by an immigrant Irish population. The living of St Jude’s, only £150, was one of the poorest in the town.

By 1879 the church building, badly in need of care and attention, was renovated. By this time the area had been improved by the demolition of the many rookeries surrounding it as a result of the building and expansion of New Street Station from 1852. The term ‘rookery’ was used colloquially in the 19th century of dilapidated tenements and slum dwellings, the haunts of thieves and crooks." from http://ahistoryofbirminghamchurches.jimdo.com/birmingham-st-martin-in-the-bull-ring/st-jude-hill-street/4
