Letter for the Prayer Community

Please read the letter (PDF) from Rev'd Bryan West inviting people to commit themselves to form a body to pray particularly and specifically for the ministry of Epiphany House as a Community.

Step into peace…

We invite you to step aside from your daily life into the peace and tranquillity of Epiphany House. Take some time out to meet with God and be refreshed and renewed in his presence.

Our 2017 programme includes opportunities from half– and full-day quiet days to weekend or week-long retreats, from creative, interactive workshops to contemplative prayer, or simply time for rest and recuperation. Come as you are, and explore the depth of God’s love and his goodness.

We’re based in the heart of Cornwall, in a beautiful historic house on the edge of Truro with views from the garden across the fields towards nearby Idless Woods. The House is easily accessible from the city centre and has plenty of free parking.

‘It was a very relaxed retreat in beautiful surroundings – definitely a 'sacred space'.’
‘There is a deep feeling of prayer and healing’
‘Accommodation and food all excellent.’
