News & Events

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.

99 Days of Gratitude

This Week at Epiphany - August 25

99 Days of Gratitude! For the next 99 days, let us join together as a community to give thanks in all circumstances. Let us intentionally focus on being grateful for gifts in our lives, families, church community, and world. Click here for inspiration to get you started and for links to online tools you can use. If you prefer to use paper and pen instead, we have journals for you to use located on the black table in the Gallery.

August is Epiphany’s Month to Stock the Emmaus House Food Pantry with non-perishable dry goods and cans and jars – i.e.mac and cheese, ramen noodles, oatmeal, tuna, canned vegetables, peanut butter. A full list is suggested items is on the Bulletin Board in the gallery. Place your donations in the basket inside Epiphany’s front doors. Thank you! 

Bible Study is offered on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. following the mid-day service at 12:15 p.m. We are using Mixed Blessings by Barbara Brown Taylor as a basis for our Bible study beginning August 27.

Handbell Workshops: If you’ve ever wanted to ring handbells, but were afraid to ask . . . here’s your chance to give it a try: Come to the choir loft on August 27 or September 10 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and learn more about ringing. No experience or music reading is necessary, but space is limited to adults and high school youth. Please contact Julie Ryder (music@epiphany.org) if you are interested in attending. 

This Sunday - August 31

The Altar Flowers & Sanctuary Light dedicatory offerings can be given as a memorial, thanksgiving or on a special occasion. Both the Altar Flowers and the Sanctuary Light slots are open for this Sunday. The Flower & Altar Guilds rely on these gifts to fund their ministries. Gifts can be made online right here, or contact the parish office (404.373.8338).

Say Cheese—We have over 1,000 members and sometimes the clergy just can’t quite put a name with a face. Please help them out by sending us your favorite snapshot or allowing Beverly Burke to take your family photo between services.

The Earth Guild are collecting corks (natural corks only, not synthetics) for recycling. Please bring your stashes of corks that you've been hanging onto for years because you didn't know how to recycle them. The bin is located by the front door.

August-October 2014: Epiphany is participating in the 2014 Atlanta Habitat for Humanity interfaith build. We are partnering with other faith communities to build a home for a first-time homebuyer. Workdays are on Sundays. Sign up in the Crossing Hall, or contact Brian Gross (404.556.7564, c) for more information!
