Welcome to St. Philip’s Episcopal Church of Dyker Heights!



Whether you are just visiting our site, or seeking a place to worship and a spiritual home, we hope this will provide you with some information about our Parish and its activities.

 

St. Philip's is a historic church located in Brooklyn, NY. It was established in 1900, when the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn was mostly small farms, pastures and woodlands, and our parish still evokes a "small country parish" feel.


We are a constituent member of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island, which in turn is a member in the American Episcopal Church. The Episcopal Church defines herself as being part of the world-wide Anglican Communion; those churches that owe their origins to the Church of England. For more information on the Episcopal Church in America click here. We believe that all baptized Christians share in the Gospel mission of the Church and no one should be excluded from the Life and Worship of the Church. St. Philip's welcomes all people into the life of this parish and strives to embody the unconditional love that God has shown to us through Jesus Christ. All are welcome, no matter where you come from in your spiritual journey, and no matter your age, race, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, economic status, abilities, or challenges.  It our purpose and desire to welcome everyone with open arms and hearts. All baptized Christians are welcomed to the table of the Lord and may receive communion. 

 

We serve Christ through our weekly worship and through a variety of ministries and missions to the community.

 

Our church consists of both lay and ordained individuals.  In the Episcopal Church the ordained ministries consist of our bishops, priests and deacons. Married men and woman are ordained and serve the church.


The ordained ministry in our parish is exercised by the Priest-in-Charge, Father Christopher Sigamoney, who has responsibility for the worship and spiritual life of our parish. The Priest-in-Charge was called by a vote of the Vestry with approval of our Diocesean Bishop.

 

Our lay members are largely responsible for organizing and running our ministries within our local community. In addition, our corporate governing body, the Vestry, consists of Wardens and Vestrypersons; lay people who are elected by their fellow parishioners to serve a set term, and who are responsible for all secular and corporate matters of the Parish.  


Holy Eucharist is celebrated each Sunday at 10:30 AM; holiday services and other worship services are as announced.


Participating in the Eucharist is the best way of discerning if God calls you to be a member of the parish.  


Therefore, if you do not have a church yet, or are seeking a deeper spiritual connection to God through faith and service, we invite you to join us for Worship and a cup of coffee at our post-worship coffee hour to chat with us and get to know us better. 

 

As St. Philip said in the Gospel when he was calling others to Christ, "Come and See!"
