Pooh Bear & the Way of Jesus is a Quiet Day led by Revd Bryan West
While Eeyore frets and Piglet hesitates and Owl pontificates, Pooh just is. Either by accident or design A A Milne imbued the character he created, Winnie-the-Pooh, with many of the virtues that Jesus encourages us to develop. Spend time with the Bear and find out more.

The Epiphany Team grows in numbers daily. People discover the house and its grounds on a walk which takes them through the beautiful grounds of the house or by word of mouth.
Our Tuesday group come along and together work to achieve great and marvellous things in the garden or the Chapel, maintaining, nurturing and caring for both, and there’s always a great supply of hot drinks and biscuits to keep all going!
One of the team, Chris comes along and helps in the garden mostly on Tuesday however when the sun shines he can be seen throughout the week keeping the grounds looking beautiful and preparing the ground in our veg patch, Chris has this to say about his time with us;
After moving to the Kenwyn area a few years ago my wife and I often walked or cycled through the grounds of Epiphany House, enjoying the beauty and tranquillity. Sometimes we would stop and chat with voluntary workers, on retirement I thought it would be good to help maintain such a lovely local resource.
After joining the gardening team, I realised how many people enjoy Epiphany House in so many ways: from dog walking, cycling, sitting, and contemplating, to sharing in worship, craft and other activities.
For me too there is enjoyment in maintaining and improving the surroundings, and in helping towards growing provisions that can be used in the house.
It has been so nice to become part of a small but dedicated team. I have made new friends with other volunteers, the staff, and people who use Epiphany House and grounds on a regular basis. It is a privilege to help preserve such a special place and see it becoming an integral part of our community.
Our Tuesday House Group writes:
We are a small group who meet at Epiphany House every Tuesday morning from 10am – 11.45am, most of us live alone and welcome the friendship and support of the group.
During our time together we care for the beautiful Chapel in the House after which we sit have coffee and a chat, we value this time spend with one another each week.
Some of the group stay and attend the weekly Service of Holy Communion at 12noon and some of us choose not to.
The Tuesday House Group is open to anyone who would like to attend, and you can choose what you would like to do, or not to do! The only requirement is to join together in friendship, support and enjoy Epiphany House and its glorious grounds.

Visitors most often remark on the wonderful service they receive from our staff and the lovely ambience of the House. This month we were delighted to receive a testimonial from Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum:
“Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum have been regular visitors at Epiphany House. The grounds are very well kept, the surroundings provide a serene and calming environment for staff to meet. The meeting rooms are spacious with a cosy feel, and the equipment is new and well taken care of.
There are coffee, tea and biscuits provided that you can help yourself to. The lunch provided was lovely, we all had Lentil Daahl that was freshly made. CVSF will continue to come back frequently as we are grateful for the thought that is put into ensuring our bookings go smoothly.”
We are keeping a candle burning in the Epiphany House Chapel for the country of Ukraine and its people as a sign of hope, peace, and solidarity in this fragile time.
Lord, we bring the people, the land and all that belongs to the Ukraine before You.
You, alone, can bring peace, justice and healing to a land besieged by an aggressor and turn curses into blessings.
We ask for Your peace, that peace that surpasses all understanding, to flood the Ukraine: that where there is violence and chaos, Your angels stand between aggressor and victim – that attacks miss their mark and are rendered harmless; that courage rises and stands its ground; that wisdom speaks into receptive ears; and that pride becomes convinced of Your forgiveness and mercy.
Help them, Lord. Save them according to Your mercy, which knows no limits.
May all know that You are at work, both in the small miracles You do, for individuals in the Ukraine, and how You can change Nations in a moment.
May the world see You, Lord, as You stand up for and protect the oppressed and turn the tide against Goliath with your favourite, your chosen David.
May Your wonderful will be done in the Ukraine, Lord, just as it is in Heaven. May we hear and say ‘Amen’ to the prayers of the people in the Ukraine and the prayers You want, Lord Jesus, for the Ukraine.
And we bless all those in the Ukraine now and in the future:
“The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
