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.

Thank you for your support!

The work has now finished on our amazing new glass doors. We have had magnificent support for this project, both from members of the congregation and from outside grant-awarding bodies. “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.

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
