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

Eucharist

On Sunday 24 June we will celebrate twenty years of ordained ministry by our associate priest, the Reverend Jeannette McHugh. Jeannette will preside and preach at 8am and 10am.

This season of 'ordinary' time begins this year on 3rd June and continues until the church year ends in late November with the Feast of Christ the King. The season after Pentecost is the longest season of the church year, just as most of our lives are spent in the ordinary times between the big dramatic events.

It's a time of opportunity and growth. It's a time for hospitality, sharing and fellowship. It's a time to listen and act. And it's a time of welcome, a time of invitation to "Come and see!"

The season after Pentecost is a time to sow good seed and to harvest.

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.
