Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Philip's began as a small chapel in 1842 on the corner of Warwick and Pembroke Gardens. It was origanally used by the local poor as a place for them to worship. When a more permanant location was selected it was closer to the wealthy area of Edwardes and Pembroke Square. The funds for the new church were raised through donations from the congregation and from the curate of Saint Barnabas, Joseph Claxton, who later became the first vicar. The architect for the church was Thomas Johnson, who was Claxton's father-in-law. The church was consecrated on 6th May 1857.
