The story of Saint Philips Church and its People – coming soon and available to pre-order now
Find out more about the history of the church and the community who lived and worked through two world wars and its fair share of change and political unrest. The booklet explores some of the history of a church loving and serving its community for nearly 200 years. It focusses on the dedicated wartime ministry of Canon Peter Green and the personal stories of the congregation who spent their lifetimes attending the church.
Pre-order your copy today – cost £7:95 (£2.95p&p with £5 donation) or £2.95p&p
All proceeds will go towards helping the church reach the local community.
Following on from the success of our Heritage Open Day Tours in September 2018, we are gathering interest from anyone who would like to go on the same tour in the future.
The tour enables you to explore the church and crypt, and hear the stories that bring it to life. You will unearth the mysteries and histories of the building and its people, including those who gathered here during the air raids of WWII.
If you are interested in going on a tour, please let us know through the link below. We will then be in touch about future dates and opportunities. If you are interested in bringing a school group, or other larger party, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you to discuss it further.
