St. Philip’s is a vibrant, working parish within the community, seeking to serve Christ in all aspects of our daily lives. Don’t worry if you have mobility issues because we have an elevator for your convenience. Our church service is held every Sunday at 11 am.
The liturgy used is the Holy Eucharist. We even have a gluten free option! The Book of Alternative Service is used with the modern Liturgy on the first 2 Sundays and the 1962 Common Prayer style on the 3rd and 4th Sunday of the month. The clergy and congregation share together actively in prayer and response throughout the service; participation in our Eucharist is open to all who are baptized, regardless of church affiliation.
Children are invited to attend our Sunday School. We have a team of well-qualified teachers and a fun, modern curriculum. A nursery is available for children aged 2 yrs and younger.
Our Outreach Committee is committed to building strong and effective multigenerational relationships among our church community and our greater Moncton community. Some examples of activities are the Breakfast Program at Beaverbrook School, a Learn to Sew class and a Learn to Cook class for grade 6 to 8 students at Queen Elizabeth School. We have received a Community Award from the Horizon Health Network for our outreacch work.
Other activities include a Choir, Bible study groups, a Book Club.
Please join our church family as we strive to do God’s will and look for his guidance in making a difference in our world.
We have been in a cooperative Team Ministry sharing two priests equally since May 1, 2011. Essential to the vision is our team approach where both priests alternate leading worship weekly, thus providing a fuller expression of personal Baptismal gifts and an understanding that each parish is in full, equal, cooperation.
The rotation model has resulted in an excellent expression of our Baptismal ministry. The team thus exemplifies how each parishioner should live out their understanding of the Gospel, and how the parishes combined in shared ministry can cooperate and realize the Body of Christ (see Rom 12, 1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4). In this model both Father Rod and Father Douglas have resisted any hierarchal title, as they see themselves as equal in the task, just as the four parishes are equal in the task: none more important than the other, all working together for the building up of the Kingdom of God.
The following are examples of our coming together to do ministry as a family: we have a Common Bulletin, Joint Services on all the 5th Sundays, the full use of the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), a fuller use of the Book of Alternative Services (BAS) in all points, a shared Sunday School Program, a common Bible Study, Back to Church Sunday, Youth Ministries, Joint Men’s Group, a very successful Video night, increased multi-media services, a joint deanery Advent Carol Service at a sister church, and celebrating together throughout Holy Week and the Triduum.
