Since 1809, St. Philip’s Church-through its clergy and congregation, its tradition and service, its goals and dreams has been an institution of major spiritual and civic importance in the Harlem community. Our history is a rich and memorable one, reaching back to 1704 when Elias Neau, a former galley slave turned prosperous businessman, opened a School for Negroes under the auspices of the London-based Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. The Christian family now known as “St. Philip’s” traces its origins to this beginning.
Today, St. Philip’s pays homage to its roots through its many religious and community activities. The church provides opportunities for spiritual development through its worship and Christian education, music, and numerous parish activities. The St. Philip’s family also maintains its historic commitment to serving the needs of those in the community.
