Welcome to St Philip Orthodox Christian Church!

Thank you for visiting our parish website.  We are grateful to God for His many blessings and we look forward to sharing them with you!

Located in the growing Philadelphia ex-urb of Souderton, Hilltown Township, Pennsylvania, Saint Philip is a vibrant, welcoming Orthodox Christian parish of the ancient Patriarchate of Antioch, where the disciples of Jesus were first called Christians (Acts 11:26).  We believe in and worship the Holy Trinity according to the unbroken Holy Tradition, most perfectly expressed in Holy Scripture.  Our services are celebrated in English.

We welcome the people of the Indian Valley and Bucks and Montgomery counties to join our parishioners, all ages and backgrounds, in worshiping the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and growing in the life in Christ and service to our neighbors.  

Besides an excellent choir leading the congregation in the ancient a capella chants of Byzantium, Russia, Georgia, and other Christian lands, we have many educational, service, and fellowship opportunities for all ages.

Though we are happy to offer this website and its many resources to you, we invite you to experience Orthodox Christianity more deeply.  St. Philip, our patron, said it very simply to his friend Nathaniel: "Come and see."

Children's Homilies

Let the Children Come Unto Me
Let the Children Come Unto Me
Children’s Homilies on the Icons of St. Philip’s - Our holy icons can become mere old-fashioned decorations to our children unless the stories of the Bible, Church history, and the Saints become our family stories. Only then can children grow deeper in their love of God and more mature in their lives in the Church. Fr. Noah Bushelli attempts to do just this in these live recordings of homilies to children of his parish about cooperating with God's love in the company of His saints.
