Welcome to St Philip the Apostle 

St Philip's is a Church of England parish church within the Diocese of Southwark and based in Sydenham in south east London. St Philip's has a friendly and multi-cultural congregation who rely on the effective power of prayer and the healing power of the Holy Spirit and who live out their faith in weekly and daily worship. All are very welcome to join us for our Sunday Eucharist, where we all meet together as a family: communicant members of other Churches are invited to take communion with us. Alternatively, you may prefer one of the quieter less formal weekday masses.


Whatever your preference, why not join us? You will be very welcome.
