Both worship services feature Holy Communion.
We will also live stream the10:00am worship virtually on Facebook and have a coffee hour after.
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?
In the summer we worship at 9:30am in the church rotating weekly between Rite I and Rite II. The fall and winter worships are at 8:00am Rite I and 10:00am Rite II. Sunday School runs during the 10:00am worship. See above under Upcoming Events to see the current worship schedule.
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. From September-June your child is welcome to attend our Sunday School, which begins at 10:00 am worship and is open to all children from age 4 through grade 8.
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 & Reverend Edmonson and the welcoming team, or just walk up to a friendly face!
Join us afterward the 10:00am worship 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.
