ABOUT OUR CHURCH

Epiphany Parish is an Episcopal church within the Diocese of Massachusetts.  If you're curious about what a truly nurturing community of believers is like, visit the About Us section of this site.

Children are valued and nurtured here at Epiphany Parish!  Our Sunday School provides faith development through instruction, worship and fellowship for preschool through middle school age children.

SERVICES

We worship on Sunday mornings at 8:00 am (Rite I) and

10:00 am (Rite II) 

 

During the summer months

(June through Labor Day)

we have one service at 9:30 am.

I'm new!  What should I expect?

 

What kind of church is Epiphany Parish?

We are an Episcopal church, a member of the Diocese of Massachusetts.  We come together to worship as a community. Everything we do seeks to grow our faith, strengthen our community, and serve the world around us. Inspired by each other and our love of God, we strive to live lives as followers of Jesus Christ.

 
What does a Sunday morning gathering look like?

We have two services each Sunday.  Our services last about an hour.  Both are Eucharist (Holy Communion) services.  The 8:00 am (Rite I) service is based on historic worship services and retains the use of "thee" and "thou," based on the old English language of the 1600’s.  This intimate service is perfect for those who prefer a quiet, contemplative worship setting.   The 10:00 am (Rite II) service is a larger more modern service with updated language. While parishioners of all ages are welcome at either service, the 10:00 am service is most appropriate for children in Sunday School. Professional nursery care for infants through age 3 is offered during the 10:00 am service each week from September through June.

 

I have young children - are they welcome?

Of course!  Children are valued and nurtured here at Epiphany Parish and we have a commitment to help them learn to worship.  The presence of children in worship is a gift to the Church.  They reveal God in unexpected ways to us, and they are a reminder that our parish is growing.    Your child is welcome to attend our Sunday School, which begins at 9:45 am and is open to all children from age 4 through grade 8. We also provide child care in the Nursery for infants and toddlers up through age 3 during our program year (September - June).

What should I wear?

Some people wear suits or dresses. Others wear jeans. We're just glad to gather together - wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable! 

 

Where should I park?

We have the parking lot next to the church, but that fills up quickly.  Street spots are available on Front Street, and around the Town Common.

WE WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU!

Come early to meet Reverend Mills and welcoming team,

or just walk up to a friendly face! 

 

Join us afterwards for coffee and conversation - some of us have been with the church for generations, some of us only a few weeks. Or, if you would rather get to know us more slowly, visit our Facebook page, request a visit with our priest, or join our email list.
