We are holding a service to commemorate the life of our friend Philip Fox, who died last year. As many of us could not get up to Scarborough for the funeral, the family thought it would be good to remember Philip on what would have been his 80th birthday.
The details are:
Friday, 10th July 2015 at 3 pm.
At Emmanuel Baptist church, Hounslow.
There will be a short service of commemoration, followed by refreshments and a time to reminisce.
If you are able to come, an RSVP would be useful (but not essential), to give us an idea of numbers for catering.
If you can’t come, but have some memories of Philip to share, do get in touch and we’ll share as much as we can on the day.
Philip Fox MBE
We were greatly saddened, on the 6th September, to learn that our dear friend Philip Fox had passed away. Philip was a valued member of Emmanuel’s family throughout his lifetime, taking on the secretaryship in 1969 following the death of his father who had been secretary before him. His faith was not something he “put-on” as part of his Sunday best – for Philip, Jesus was the leading light in his life and he radiated back that energy in all that he did. From his work life to his tenure as Boys’ Brigade Captain (7th Hounslow) and his preaching & leading of Sunday School to his joyous involvement in his local choirs, Philip made it clear to all around the wonders and, yes, hardships of being a Christian. He was a constant inspiration to all of us who were blessed to know him and he will be greatly missed.
