Philip was a native of Bethsaida on the Sea of Galilee.

Jesus found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." Philip obeyed and a little later told Nathanael about Jesus. "Come and see," Philip said (John 1:43-46).

This is the invitation of St Philip's Parish:
"Come and see!".

Sundays 8am and 10am, Thursdays 10am



The Holy Spirit came to Jesus' disciples as they waited prayerfully in response to his command. The Spirit gives diverse gifts of ability and ministry and Pentecost is celebrated as the beginning of the church. From that day, the disciples began boldly to preach and teach the good news about Jesus. Tongues of fire appeared on their heads as the Holy Spirit came, and they began to speak in many new languages. Read more.

We celebrate and reflect on God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit — Creator, Redeemer and Giver of Life.

St John's

At the feeding of the five thousand, Jesus challenged Philip: "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?" We are called to feed the hungry.

St Philip's is taking up the challenge to support the work of St John's Care, in our neighbouring parish of Reid. For many years St Philip's has helped with nourishing meals through the Northbourne Centre and Deacon Robin's ministry. But the Centre has had to close as the Northbourne Flats have been demolished.

Our Diocese is in the process of prayerfully discerning who our new Bishop should be. The Bishop will be elected by Synod at the end of this year. More information and FAQ. The Nominations Committee also invites us to join in prayer and to use its suggested prayer resources.
