Background History













St Philip's Church was built in 1902. It had a thriving congregation for many years.   In latter years the congregation decreased and St Philip's and St John's Parishes were merged together.  

In 2000, St. John's new church was opened and is known as Great Marsden St John's with St Philip's. 

St Philip's Church was no longer used for regular worship. It was taken over by the Diocesan Board of Social Responsibilities. 

The Church is now referred to as Grass Roots.  Many different activities now take place at Grass Roots run by a variety of organisations.
