March day of prayer

Please make time to pray with and for our Church this Thursday 4th March from 6am to 8pm.

We are calling and encouraging our Church to pray and to seek God's face together as we build for the future.

Praying for...
  • Renewal, that the love of God may well up in our hearts and overflow to the lives of others
  • Revival, that we as God's children may live again in the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Unity, that we may be protected from division, and that we will love one another as God has loved us
You might want to read and pray through and around Jesus' prayer for his disciples in John 17:6-19

Zoom links to pray with others throughout the day are available on application from the Parish Office.

Support our Revival Prayer Campaign

As we prepare in earnest for the opening of our new building it is absolutely vital that as the church family we pray continuously for the Holy Spirit to fill us and guide us in all aspects of the work in building His kingdom. As well as personal prayers please do join in any of the sessions on Zoom by contacting the Parish Office and you will receive email reminders at the appropriate times,  so you can join whenever is convenient.
Do remember you can drop in and out of these sessions as time allows, staying for as short or long a time as you wish so you are not necessarily signing up for a big time commitment.  And you are not even obliged to pray yourself; simply listening to others with an affirming Amen is just as valuable!

We come together as a Church to pray at these times:

Mondays, weekly at 7pm         Prayers focus on the building project
Thursdays, weekly at 6pm       Parish Prayers
Days of Fasting and Prayer     First Thursday of each month
Breakfast at 8.30am                 First Saturday of every month

Building for the Future – come and explore the story

Hear a short history of St Philip’s Church and about some of the journey that we have been on since 2010 to arrive at the building of the new St Philip’s Church Centre on Manor Road. The twists and turns and the hurdles that we have been faced with have only been overcome by prayer and faith. Dip into the talk whilst you have a coffee (or tea) in one go or in parts if it suits you better.

Books & Resources available


Christian Hughes has a number of books and resources available which he is happy to pass on to  to anyone who would like to use them.

A full list is available below. To select any, please contact Christian directly or via the Parish Office.
