St Philips is a congregation of Christians,under the episcopal care of the Bishop of Woolwich, who rely on the effective power of prayer and the healing work of the Holy Spirit and who live out this faith in weekly and daily worship and common life. Our faith flows from the Holy Scriptures and the teachings of the early Church Fathers. In particular, we believe that God has entered and shared our human life to the utmost in the Person of Jesus Christ, his life, death and resurrection and therefore shows himself to us now through the events of human lives and in witness and discipleship in the world.
When we come together to celebrate the sacraments we encounter God through his son, a spiritual, life-giving reality, present in a material form.
The people of St Philip's manifest our faith through worship that uses colour, light, music and ancient symbols.
