Please see our Sunday and Wednesday Service Booklets. With our prayers Revd Philippa Turner, Vicar


St Philips is a welcoming and friendly Anglican church in Kensington, bordering Earl’s Court. We have many young families with children, but a few of us are in our 90s! Most of us live in the neighbouring streets. We celebrate our faith, but have plenty of room for those with questions and don’t discourage them.

Worship Services

Sundays: 10.30 am Holy Eucharist. Please see our Service Booklets.

The third Sunday of each month (during term time) is the All Age Service when the children participate in leading the worship, and stay with the rest of the congregation in church.

Mondays & Tuesdays (except Bank Holidays): 8.00 am Morning Prayer.

Wednesdays (except Bank Holidays): 8.30 am Morning Prayer.

12.30pm Holy Eucharist followed by fellowship and discussion. Bring a packed lunch; we will provide hot drinks.

Community Activities

Mondays (except Bank Holidays): Bible Study in Church 2.30 -3.30pm. Come and join our informal discussion - usually on the next week's Sunday Bible readings.

Wednesday: 1.15pm: Book discussion and fellowship. After Advent we will continue to read and discuss Malcolm Guite's poetry on the psalms. Bring your own lunch; we will provide hot drinks.

Through a glass, quietly ...

We’ve now formally applied for the Faculty (permission) for this work. There is a 28 day consultation period starting from 1 May and you can find details of the consultation HERE and all the supporting documents HERE.

Meanwhile, our appeal to help cover the costs has passed the half way point.

Please do consider sponsoring one (or more) square feet of glass for £100 (or £80 plus Gift Aid if you are eligible), for yourself, your family, or in memory of somebody special to you. Those metrically minded might like to sponsor a square metre - £1,000 (or £800 plus Gift Aid). For more details, please click HERE. If you would like to make a large donation or are not eligible to claim Gift Aid, please contact our treasurer.

Please note: Builders’ charges tend to go up rather than down, but in the unlikely event that the amount raised exceeds the final cost, the extra will be put in the “Improving St Philip’s Fund” for future improvements to our building.

St Philips Church is entirely self funded, and our income has obviously been significantly reduced during the current unprecedented crisis. During this pandemic, we are working to continue our mission

If you would like to put money in our virtual collection plate, either after a service or at any time, please click HERE. You can choose to make a one-off or regular donation, either of which will be very gratefully received. Thank you.

We've made St Philip's Zoom!

St Philip's church have invested £10,000 in a new video system to equip the church for the post COVID digital age. This technology means we can offer hybrid services, enabling both those present in the church and those attending remotely to experience as close to a normal service as possible.

Live-streaming weddings, baptisms and other special services is now possible, and will mean that even those unable to attend in person won't miss out.

We are fortunate to have received donations to cover this amount now, and are very grateful to all those who have supported us financially with this project.
