Welcome to St Philip's West Howe
Welcome, and thank you for visiting St Philip's Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site or come in for a visit. We would love to meet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ.
The good news is that we are able to worship again back in the church from Easter Sunday.
We will of course have measures in place to keep everyone as safe as possible and these will include: social distancing, wearing masks and unfortunately no singing by the congregation.
All of this is so that we can make sure we keep everyone as safe as possible.
Sundays will look different for a while but God can work though that difference!
We will still be streaming our services to those who are not able to join us!
Kingdom Kids is a new all age Christian children & families ministry filled with fun, worship, crafts, food and most importantly Jesus!
[Children need to be accompanied by an adult and adults need to bring a child!]
We have been at the heart of the community here in West Howe for decades and we want to continue to be a place where people meet together. As such our church centre is available to hire for community groups and private events such as children's birthday parties and baby showers etc.
At St. Philip's we believe that each person is created in God's image and has an innate value and dignity. We are committed to ensuring that the church is a safe place for everyone, and St. Philip's PCC have adopted the Church of England's Safeguarding Policy.
WHO ARE WE
We are part of the Church of England and have been in the centre of West Howe since 1953. We believe that through Jesus Christ we can encounter the God who created and loves us, that when we engage with Him through worship, His word, sharing communion together and prayer, that we are transformed and equipped by the Holy Spirit to live as Jesus' disciples and serve Him in the world.
In all that we do we aim to share the love of Jesus whether through our words or deeds.
However, the best way to find out about us is to come and see for yourselves, so why not join us and see what we're like and what we get up to? We'd really love to meet you!
In April 2021, we held our Annual Meeting at St Philips which gave us the great opportunity to look back over 2020 and thank God for all He has done in our parish. Take a look at what we got up to...
