We will be continuing to live-stream daily prayer at Midday on Mondays and Wednesdays. You can follow along by getting the C of E app Time to Pray, or visiting their website.

St Philip's Church is a generous community, and your generosity funds our ministry and mission. The simplest way to give to our work is through the Parish Giving Scheme.
Signing up is very straightforward. Through your prayerful commitment, we get a regular, tax-efficient source of income which has the capacity to increase with the cost of living, yet involves virtually no administration for us. The system is secure, confidential and easy to use, and free to you and us, supporting our church today and for the future.
