Welcome to Epiphany on the Web!

Now that you are here, you can find out all about this Parish that has been around for over 100 years, welcoming, working for social justice, praying, having fun, and proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ that all have a place at our table. 

But, more importantly we want to see you here, on Sunday breaking bread with us, or Wednesday nights for choir, parish supper, or bible study. We want to invite you to help us feed the hungry at Peachtree and Pine (Task Force for the Homeless Shelter), or at Hagar’s House (a women and children’s shelter in Decatur). We want your children to learn the stories of our faith and tradition through Godly Play, we want to invite you to a quiet moment of meditation on your faith journey.

We are a place that welcomes people, all people. We welcome ideas about how we know and live God’s love in this world. We welcome the energy and passion to make those ideas a part of our common life here at Epiphany and in the larger church and the world.

Browse our site, get a notion here about what we are about then, come find out, in person, we will be glad to see you.


The Rev. Benno Pattison, Rector

Our Mission

The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany is an inclusive community called to seek and follow Jesus Christ. We welcome all people in the Eucharistic Fellowship of Christ's Body. We receive strength and encouragement at the common table to carry out Christ's work of reconciliation in our broken world. Nourished by worship and witness, learning and teaching, fellowship and service, we strive to live out the Gospel's radical values with gladness of heart.

Register for Kanuga

Join our Community in celebrating 99 days of gratitude!  Every day we want you to find something, or a person, or a moment to be grateful for.  We hope that this will be  a season in your life that can be transformative, healing, giving.  This is our season of being grateful for your family, this church, the work we do, God in our midst.  Come celebrate these 99 days!

Sundays we will have Town Hall meetings to listen, and talk about our gratitude for the work we do around Epiphany.  We will talk about mission and ministry, and numbers and budgets.  We want everyone to join us in this conversation.  Below you will see an alphabetized invitation.  If you can't come at the time that corresponds to your moment, come when you can!
