Welcome to St Philip & St James' Church

Known locally as "Pip and Jim's", we are a Church of England church in Walderslade, a suburb to the south of Chatham in the Medway Towns. More information about us is available on our website and our Facebook page.

We normally have about 200 people joining us across our services each Sunday. Parking is available at Greenacre Academy on Walderslade Road for our morning service.


This service includes times of contemporary sung worship, a talk and the opportunity to respond in prayer ministry. We usually celebrate Holy Communion at this service on the first and third Sunday of each month. There are groups for children up to Year 9. Refreshments are served after the the service.


Our evening services have a particular focus on worship, teaching and ministry. We normally celebrate Holy Communion on the second and fourth Sunday of each month. Refreshments are available before each service.

Additionally, on the last Sunday of each month, we have a special Songs of Praise service at 4pm followed by a light tea served in the Church Hall.

We are also pleased to host Walderslade Sings! a community choir singing rock and pop songs from across the decades. Do join in. That starts at 7:30pm on most Sunday evenings in term time.
