NEWS!

We are delighted to announce that from 7th July our new Vicar will be Rev’d Dr Ruth Barry.  Before ordination Ruth lived for years in Thoday Street, and she is currently Curate of St Andrew’s Cherry Hinton.

In the coming months there are two Ministers who will have responsibility for the services and pastoral care: Michael Priestley, also Chair of PCC and Catherine Ievins a semi-retired priest. The two Church Wardens have the many legal and practical things to oversee. There are many incredible volunteers at St Philips; they are the church, not the Vicar!

The church also has staff: Rosemary Barrett, the Operations manager for the Centre and Caroline Muncey with church admin – they will be ensuring that things will be looked after. If you want to get in touch with any of the above please see the contact page.

Regular Church Services:

  • The main Sunday service is at 10.30am every week and we would love you to join us for an informal service, with singing and provision for children. Communion on 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays.
  • On the first and third Sundays of each month we also offer a reflective Holy Communion service at 8.30am with no singing and two metres distance.
  • There will still be plenty of ventilation to protect us from Covid and adults will try to protect each other by wearing masks.

The Church and Centre are open for hirers  – please contact the office if you would like to make a booking. We currently have groups using the various rooms most days but would welcome more.

The Café will be closed from Monday 23rd May. The Church will take time to think and pray about the future of the café and we hope to open it again in a few months.


St Philip’s Church is a lively, growing Christian community in the heart of Romsey Town in Cambridge.

Mill Road is one of the most interesting and varied roads in England. The Church Centre opened in 2012 and is a wonderful venue for all members of our community to meet with each other, and with God, through regular worship, Church group activities, and special occasions such as marriages and baptisms. St Philip’s Church Centre also provides a venue for concerts, movie nights, exercise groups and a wide range of community activities and classes. We hire out rooms in the Centre for meetings, seminars and office space and are one of the largest venues in Romsey for hosting special events.

With its friendly service and picture-windows overlooking busy Mill Road, the Cornerstone Café is a great place to stop in for coffee or a freshly cooked meal from early in the morning to the afternoon.

Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am with many other opportunities through the week for prayer and discovering more about Jesus. Our style is informal, seeking to be relevant and inclusive to our varied community, while seeking to be faithful to the Scriptures and following Jesus. Visiting us in person is the best way of discovering what we are like!

We look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
