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.
St Philips holds service in person and via Facebook Live.
However, in an effort to ensure that we keep everyone as safe as possible we are asking everyone who joins us for in person worship to:
Stay at home if you are unwell or have symptoms of Covid
Continue to use the one way system in and out of the building
Wear a mask whilst in the building- this is particularly important when we sing together.
Make use of the hand sanitizers as you arrive and leave
Respect other people's space.
We will still be streaming our services to those who are not able to join us in person!
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...
