Welcome to St Philip’s Kelsall

At St Philip’s we seek to show God’s love to the community of Kelsall and further afield, both practically and through prayer.  We enjoy a variety of services that provide both the traditional Anglican liturgy, or more contemporary worship, all centred around the word of God revealed in the Bible.  This year St Philip’s celebrate our 150th Anniversary.  More than ever we are taking our ministry into our community.  We want to share with you our wonderful fellowship throughout the year in a series of events listed below.

A prayer for the life of our church

Lord, bless this Church,
that we may reveal your presence 

and the power of your resurrection.

May our church community
show signs of new life and joy in you.

Through our relationship with you
may we bring others to be faithful.

Lord, fill us with your Spirit
and make us a holy people,
fulfilled in you and reaching out to others.

Bless this Church, that it may grow in outreach,
in holiness and in number.

 In Jesus’ name.
