Feast of the Epiphany

Feast of the Epiphany

Due to the uncertainty caused by the increase in Covid cases we are not sure whether we can hold our usual Epiphany Celebration. If possible we would like to have an opportunity to share tea and cake in the new foyer (with the bi-fold doors open) from 3pm followed by the Eucharist in the Chapel at 4pm which will be presided by Revd Dr Lucy Larkin. We will ask you to book via email bookings@epiphanyhouse.co.uk for this, as undoubtedly numbers will be restricted, but your email will not be answered until the New Year as the House is closed for its Christmas Break. A decision will be made on 3rd January when the House re-opens and we will be in touch with anyone who has booked a place to let them know whether the celebration can happen.

Saying farewell to our old mower which has done many years sterling service but sadly is now broken beyond repair, and welcome to our shiny new mower that we have been able to purchase due to the generosity of a benefactor.

For those who have far to travel

For those who have far to travel

Letter from Janette:
If you could see
the journey whole,
you might never
undertake it, might never dare
the first step
that propels you
from the place
you have known
toward the place you know not.

This extract from a poem by Jan Richardson entitled ‘For those who have far to travel’, really speaks to me about the journey I have been on for the last 9 years.  But the place I ‘knew not’ has become the place I love and care for deeply.  That won’t change I know as I move on to pastures new at the beginning of February. Epiphany House is a remarkable place that has brought peace and healing to so many. It is not always possible for us to share the many stories of the effects visiting the House and its grounds can have on the pilgrim, the seeker, the broken, but I thank God for it. It is for many a ‘thin place’ where they find it easier to connect with God, and despite the fact I cannot really understand the theology of place, I have certainly witnessed it. It has been an immense privilege serving here for this exciting period in the House’s history. I leave knowing that there is a very faithful and devoted team (even though very small) to carry on the work.  In addition, the Trust are advertising for new staff to complete the team as they step forward into a New Season.
May you be blessed with peace and joy this Christmas and may 2022 bring you new blessings
