THROUGH A GLASS, QUIETLY
There are many ways you can give to St Philip's. Whether it is your time, talent or treasure we appreciate anything you can offer.
How can you help? St Philip’s depends on the growing number of volunteers who generously give their time to the church, whether by arranging flowers for Sunday services, serving drinks, reading lessons, serving on committees, or through many other ways.
St Philip’s is entirely self-funded, and we have a growing lay leadership taking responsibility for whole areas of the church’s life.

For years, St Philips has been troubled by traffic noise. And weekday services are disrupted by people coming and going from the halls.
All due to virtually non-existent sound separation at the West end of the church.
A survey of the congregation overwhelmingly backed finding a solution for this as the most important development need for the church.
We now have a project ready to go, which has been approved by the Diocese’s Advisory Committee and is highly sympathetic to the existing look and feel of the church. It involves a lot of glass – 320 square feet to be precise!
There will be a new lobby to contain street noise. We are also going to augment the partition at the West End of the church to make it noise-resistant without changing its appearance.
A grant of £50,000 has been pledged, and we are looking for further grants. Now, we are seeking donations from the congregation to raise £32,000, a £100 for each of the 320 square feet of glass.
Please consider sponsoring one or more square feet of glass for £100 (£80 plus Gift Aid), 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).
