In preparation for increasing the minimum age for Confirmation candidates to those in Year 10, there will be no Confirmation at St Philip’s in 2024. The next course is expected to begin in the autumn of 2024.

First Holy Communion

Baptisms are arranged by appointment.  Parents are required to attend a preparation session before a date is arranged for their child’s Baptism. A blue Baptism Application form, available at the back of the church, should be completed and returned before attending a preparation session. The date of the next session will be announced in the weekly parish newsletter.


There is the opportunity for Confession on Saturday mornings.  They are held in the Weekday Chapel, next to the side entrance of the church.  Please remain in the church while waiting.


Weddings are arranged by appointment. Six months’ notice is required. Contact the Parish Priest for more information.
