The Tuesday Team

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.
