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.
Sundays: 10.30am Holy Eucharist. 8pm Compline. 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): 8.00am Morning Prayer.
Wednesdays (except Bank Holidays): 8.30am Morning Prayer.
12.30pm Holy Eucharist followed by fellowship and discussion. Bring a packed lunch; we will provide hot drinks.
Introducing our new Curate - Helen Calner
Helen will be ordained priest on Saturday 17 June, at St Paul's Hammersmith at 2pm.
Helen says: I was born and grew up in Sweden, coming from a small town in the south. My passion for exploring life and God has taken me around the globe; from being a drama teacher, to becoming a Lutheran deacon and now to being ordained priest in Church of England... and I always thought I would become a musician! I am very excited about joining you at St Philips and am very much looking forward to getting to know you all.
Helen is preaching at her first service for St Philips on Sunday 18 June at our all age Holy Eucharist. Come & see

Thank you for your support!
The work will start on our glass lobby and screen in the next few weeks. We have had magnificent support for this project, both from members of the congregation and from outside grant-awarding bodies. Very soon, you will be able to “Come and See … and Hear”!
Virtual Collection Plate
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.
Chris Luxton is our Electoral Roll Officer. Please contact her for more information, and/or complete this form to join our Church Electoral Roll.
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 the cost, and are very grateful to all those who have supported us financially with this project.
