Living as a Pastor was his everyday lifestyle and this was reflected in the names ascribed to him: John, James, Theophilus, Phillip. He navigated life on a relational basis that had local, regional, and international impact.
“I enjoy the friendship of people, their helpfulness and willingness to become involved, and their concern for the work of God”.
“God has shown his love for me by giving me a beautiful wife, two lovely children and three grandchildren; with the ability not to worry and to get along with people”.
His message to the worldwide community of believers in these last days is based on Isaiah 43:1-2:
“People should keep holding on to the hand of Jesus and never let go despite the difficulties that may come your way. Hold on and trust until Jesus comes the second time”.
James leaves to mourn his:
Born in the Caribbean island of St Kitts in the late 1940s who would have known that ‘shy John Morris’ …
Capitalising on the favourable May weather, retired pastor, James Philip, tilled the ground in his Lewisham allotment.
Maybe you have a story to share or a memorable impact moment with James. You can do so by typing a tribute or uploading video or audio files. The information shared will be read by others on the website but also will be collated for the family.
I know the God of comfort is embracing you and bearing you on eagle’s wings as the impact of the loss of Pastor Phillip is beginning to take root.
While his larger than life presence will be forever missed, his spirit of compassion, confidence, command, camaraderie, and of course the spirit of Christ will linger on in our hearts and minds for ever.
Due to Covid-19, social distancing rules apply.
Funeral arrangements are strictly by invitation only.
