What we believe

St Philips is part of the Church of England and our beliefs and worship services stem from the national church. We believe that God loves all people and that through Jesus we may enjoy life in all its fullness, which is life with God.

Our beliefs are summarised in the ancient “creeds” which most other main church denominations declare each Sunday.

We believe in God the Father,

from whom every family

in heaven and on earth is named.

We believe in God the Son,

who lives in our hearts through faith,

and fills us with his love.

We believe in God the Holy Spirit,

who strengthens us

with power from on high.

We believe in one God;

Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


It can be difficult to understand what everything means in the creed, which is why we meet with other Christians and share the journey of faith together.
