Who We Are
St Philip’s is a growing, Church of England church located in Tunbridge Wells. We are an ordinary group of people trying to follow Jesus and trying to be a loving, servant hearted presence in the communities we are a part of. We welcome all and we have excellent cakes and coffee at our services. Why not come along and join us on a Sunday or at one of the groups that runs during the week. You’d be very welcome.
