St Philips is an Anglican parish church within the Diocese of Southwark and based in Sydenham in south east London. St Philips 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.

In order to help contain the spread of Coronavirus throughout the Capital, all Church of England Church buildings in London boroughs have been instructed to close to the Public from Monday 23 March 2020.
We very much regret that this has become necessary, but we must do all we can to contribute to the efforts being made to keep people safe and healthy.
While our services are suspended the Eucharist is being celebrated (but not in church) on behalf of, and for, the parishes each day at 10.00 a.m. You might want to unite in prayer at this time perhaps by saying the Lord''s Prayer in your own home.
We remain united in prayer for our communities and nation and continue to hold in our prayers all those who work in our NHS, care agencies and emergency services as well as those undertaking vital work in our supermarkets and distribution networks. We particularly pray at this time for the sick, elderly and other vulnerable people.
The Parish of St Philip the Apostle takes safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. Further information and useful links can be found via the tab marked "Safeguarding" at the top of the page.
