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 Feast of the Epiphany on 6th January begins a season to celebrate the manifestation, the revelation, of Jesus to the world.

When Jesus was baptised in the Jordan, he was declared to be God's beloved Son, with whom God was well pleased (Matthew 3.17).

Our observance of the Epiphany season culminates with Candlemas (the Feast of The Presentation of Christ in the Temple) which we will observe on Sunday 4th February.

When his parents presented Jesus at the Temple, Simeon called him a "Light to the Gentiles" and the "Glory of Israel" (Luke 2.32).
