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.

Week of July 27

Babies: Our Guild of the Christ Child bulletin board barely has any booties on it. Have you had a baby within the past year? We’d love to post your newest family member. Send your child’s full name, date of birth and a favorite picture for posting so we can populate our board again.

Podcasts: Did you know our sermon's are available as Podcasts, and for Sharon, also as PDFs? Just go to this link to find recent sermons.


This Sunday - August 2

8/2 & 8/9—The Earth Guild is sponsoring a small electronics event between services on the Sundays. If you can't bring your recyclables on either of those Sundays, take them to the Byrd House carport until end of day on August 10. No large appliances, please! Also, the recycling center requires a $10 fee for TVs and monitors.

Epiphany Summer Choir: Our Epiphany Choir is taking a well-deserved break from regular rehearsals this summer, but we will still have choral music on Sunday mornings. Here is your chance for singing with no mid-week commitment! Come to the music suite on Sunday mornings at 10:30 and learn the music for that Sunday’s service. We will not process or vest and you may decide to sit in the congregation until the Peace, sing the anthem, and then return to your seat. All adults and high school youth are welcome.  Summer Choir begins next Sunday June 7.


Upcoming Events

8/5—Holy Comforter Dinner: It’s Epiphany’s turn to provide the Wednesday Night Dinner for this mission church of the Diocese, about 60% of whose congregation lives with mental illness. We need people to cook starting at 2:30 p.m. and also to provide cupcakes. Please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084aaeaa2c7-holy1 or on the sign-up sheet posted in the Crossing Hall on Sundays. Contact: Jeanette Hanson 404.982.9134.

8/15—Alabama Pilgrimage: This year the Episcopal Church commemorates the 50th anniversary of the death of Jonathan Daniels, an Episcopal seminarian who died August 20, 1965, in Hayneville, Alabama, during the struggle for voting rights. The three buses chartered by the Diocese of Atlanta’s Commission for Dismantling Racism are full. People are encouraged to consider making the drive themselves to Hayneville, or set up carpools of their own. If you have questions, please contact Gretchen Maclachlan at 404.524.2705 or Cindy Bell at 404.549.3363.

8/22—Epiphany Choir “Treat”: The Epiphany Choir will hold its second annual in-house retreat (Treat) on Saturday, August 22 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. We’ll rehearse music, renew friendships, meet new members, and get a head start on the upcoming choir year. Lunch is provided. Contact: Organist and Choirmaster Julie Ryder.

Join the Choir: The Epiphany Choir, an all-volunteer choir, provides musical leadership for the weekly 8:45 and 11:15 am Holy Eucharist and major Feast Days. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7:15-9 p.m. (beginning September 2), and membership is open to adults and high school youth. On Sunday mornings, choristers typically sing for only one liturgy. Contact: Organist and Choirmaster Julie Ryder.

8/26—Confirmation classes to be offered this Fall: Confirmation is open to any adult or youth seeking to know more about the Christian faith as the Episcopal church has received it. Classes will begin Wednesday, August 26 at 6:30 p.m. and will meet weekly until 8 p.m. through December 9. Confirmation is scheduled for Sunday, December 9 at 4 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. Philip. Contact: The Rev. Dr. Sharon Hiers
