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!".

Resumption of services

The worship and prayer life of the Parish continues. The Eucharist is celebrated three times a week by Revd Martin and the offices of the Church are said morning and evening. There will be no public services for a few more weeks at least.

ACT regulations now allow gatherings of up to 20 people. The small Thursday Eucharist will recommence from 11 June (in the church, not the Lamerton Centre).

Step 2.2. of the ACT Recovery Plan allows numbers to increase to 50 from 20 June onwards. Unless there is a change of situation in the meanwhile, our normal pattern of public Sunday services is expected to resume from Sunday 28 June. Essential Covid-19 planning is underway. Advice on how the services will operate will be provided beforehand. Changes to routines will be unavoidable. The Lamerton Centre will remain closed until further notice.
