Rector’s Message

Welcome to the virtual front door of the Church of St. Philip-in-the-Fields in Oreland, Pennsylvania, and thank you for stopping by. There are three qualities that really stand out about St. Philip’s. The first, of course, is our people. Every church says so, but St. Philip’s truly is a warm and welcoming community. We want you to feel comfortable when you come, and we hope to get to know you. When you come, plan to stay for a while – we have a wonderful coffee hour at the end of our worship time.

The second quality that stands out about St. Philip’s is our love of music, especially music in worship. Even though we are small, we have four – yes FOUR – choirs, two voice choirs and two bell choirs, who grace our worship on Sundays and holy days.

The third quality is our commitment to outreach, both local and global. The people of St. Philip-in-the-Fields believe that our mission is to address human need, both locally and far away. We feel called to make a positive difference in the world. If that is also your passion, we invite you to join us here. Come and make a difference.

The Rev. Robin Smith
