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.

Peace,

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.

Epiphany Summer Choir: In order to give our Epiphany Choir members a break and also continue to have good choral music during the summer months, the Epiphany Summer Choir comes to the rescue! Come to the music suite on any Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. and learn the music for that Sunday’s service. You can decide to sing every Sunday or just on the odd or even Sundays! We will not process or vest and you may decide to sit in the congregation until the Peace, sing the offertory anthem, and then return to your seat. All adults and high school youth are welcome. Summer Choir continues through August. 

Lovingkindness Meditation meets in the Assoc. Rector’s office, Room 103.

Nursery care is offered during the morning services for newborns and young children. Parents who regularly use the nursery are asked to volunteer once a quarter. Contact the parish office to get on the rotation.

Children’s Bulletin: A bulletin designed for children is available in the Narthex along with crayons. We ask that crayons in good condition be returned to be used again.
