- Coffee Hour | St. Philip Episcopal
Our "Coffee Hour" St Philip is known for its hospitality and “coffee hour” following the Sunday worship services is a small way to make a big difference by welcoming our guests and visitors. This is usually much less than an hour, but sharing a cup of coffee and a donut among those with whom we worship deepens our relationships with others as a faith community. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Parish Hall immediately following the services. Our Coffee Hour Hosts make this happen! This ministry comes with minimal Sunday morning responsibilities and is always looking for volunteers to help. If you are interested, contact the Parish office: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Vestry | St. Philip Episcopal
What is the Vestry? The Vestry is a group of elected congregational leaders within the congregation of an Episcopal church. Its basic responsibility is to: Help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; Support the mission by word and deed; Elect a rector when the need arises; Ensure effective organization and planning; Ensure adequate resources in leadership and in financial stewardship; Manage resources effectively; Determine that appropriate programs, policies, and procedures have been developed and are followed; Assess its own performance. It has some similarities to a board of directors, but it is important to remember that this ministry of leadership is exercised within a church. The success of a congregation is not measured in terms of numbers of members or size of the endowment, but rather in the degree to which it is working toward fulfillment of the mission of the Church.

- About Us | St. Philip Episcopal
A COMMUNITY OF FAITH We worship God in the Anglican Tradition, seek God's truth, grow in Christ, and proclaim God's Word to the world. This is the center of this parish's focus. From this worship experience, our actions of outreach and missions go beyond the congregational boundaries. We work in joy to bring the Good News of God's love and care to the world around us. The History of St. Philip - Davieshire The Rt. Rev. W. Fred Gates, Jr., Suffragan Bishop of Tennessee, presided at the first service of St. Philip Church on Sunday afternoon, December 8, 1974, at the J. B. Griffin Memorial Chapel in Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Brunswick, Tn. Three weeks later, December 29, 1974, Mrs. Ellen Davies Rodgers donated ten (10) acres for a church to be built on land that was a part of Davies Plantation. On January 24, 1976, St. Philip Episcopal Church was accepted as an Organized Mission at the 144th Convention of the Diocese of Tennessee. “Miss Ellen”, as she was affectionately known, would later give more land and most of the means for the construction of the church building. The late Rev. H. Gordon Bernard became Vicar of St. Philip in July,1980. Ground was broken for the new church that same year on September 14, with more than 300 people attending on an afternoon when the temperature soared to 103 degrees. Both Bishop William E. Sanders and Suffragan Bishop Gates took part in the consecration service for the new church on Sunday, November 1, 1981, (All Saints’ Day). St. Philip became the first congregation admitted to parish status in the newly created Diocese of West Tennessee on January 20, 1984, under the Rt. Rev. Alex D. Dickson. Fr. Bernard served as Rector until his retirement in July of 1988. The Rev. John Sterling came to St. Philip in the fall of that same year and served until his retirement in April of 1994. On April 25, 1994, the Rev. Joseph N. Davis began his duties as the third Rector of St. Philip. After thirteen years, in June, 2007, Fr. Davis left to accept a call to the Church of the Resurrection in Franklin, Tennessee. In August, 2008, the Search Committee and Vestry of St. Philip concluded their nationally advertised search for its’ fourth Rector when they called Fr. Terry Street. Fr. Terry came to us from St. John’s Episcopal Church and Barth House. It was with a unanimous vote by the Search Committee and a separate unanimous vote by the full Vestry that Fr. Terry was called. Fr. Terry began his ministry at St. Philip on Sunday, September 21st, 2008 with formal installation to follow on November 20th. St. Philip has grown from "six warm souls" in a cemetery chapel to a busy parish of approximately 200 members. St. Philip has many lay ministries, including an energetic Men's Club, an active women's organization which meets monthly and is very involved in several outreach programs. In 2007, St. Philip became the new home of the Good Shepherd Center for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, which serves the entire diocese. We have a vital Christian education program for children, adults, and nursery. We have a modern "state of the art" playground. While intentionally remaining a traditional parish, we seek to proclaim the good news of Christ to all people in our community. At the ground breaking ceremony in 1980, Miss Ellen said of the land that she had given for the church, "Many types of rewarding crops have been planted on this good land for more than a century by my family. Today we plant the Cross and by the grace of faith, pray for an abundant harvest. As we attempt to build upon the faithful deeds of those who have gone before us, may we serve our Lord so that his harvest may always increase."

The Parish assisted in collecting donations for the Memphis Animal Shelter with troop 10007 and the children's home in 2017. We have used their kitchen for World Thinking Day treats and other badge work cooking. The office includes Girl Scout updates and activities in their monthly newsletter as well.
