ST PHILIP THE APOSTLE
Worship at St Philip's is open to all. We draw upon the ancient tractions and practices of the Church; offering Prayer and private devotions daily, with the celebration of the Eucharist, the Mass, at the centre of our worshipping life together. We draw upon the rich and beautiful tradition of the Churches use of plainsong in our worship in many of our acts of worship, and at our main Sunday Mass we also incorporate a range of hymns and songs from across the years.
Whether you join us for during the week Morning or Evening Prayer or at the daily Mass, or on a Sunday, you are welcome here.
9:15 am Morning Prayer
A short 15 minute service based on scripture readings and saying of psalms. Morning prayer is recited by the Parish Priest, but anyone is welcome to join in, or simply sit and listen.
10:00 am Sung Mass
The celebration of the Eucharist is at the centre of our worshipping life together. Here we receive the Body and Blood of Christ, the sacrament of Holy Communion. The Sung Mass is always offered with reverence using chant, hymns and songs, but we are also relaxed and we love having families worship with us and the young ones are welcome to explore the church whilst we worship or to have a go at some of the arts and crafts activities.
5:00 pm Choral Evensong (Third Sunday of the Month)
Lasting about 40 minutes, Evensong draws its roots from the Church of England's Book of Common Prayer. Most of this service is sung by the choir. After Evensong you are invited to join us for drinks and supper which is then followed by a stimulating talk by a guest speaker
7:00 pm Low Mass
10:30 am Holy Communion
according to the rites of the Book of Common Prayer
