Those of us who have known Epiphany House over the years have been struck by the way the ‘right person’ emerges to meet a need at the ‘right time.’ Some may attribute this to Providence, some have seen it as the working of the Holy Spirit, others might dismiss it as coincidence. We are fortunate indeed to have Jane Lowndes on the Team and I am delighted to report that she has accepted the invitation to take on an enhanced role in the organisation as Operations Director, a role she started on 1st January.
Her commitment to the welfare of the staff team is apparent. She has frequently acted as a sensitive welcomer to users of the House, whether they are attending receptions after funerals or birthdays or if they are attending meetings or training events or inquests. Many volunteers will have seen Jane’s skills when they help out in the house or at the large-scale events that take place in the grounds – whether it’s a fully catered wedding reception in a marquee on the forecourt, or for the site transformation that happens when Miracle Theatre bring their shows to Truro!
Jane’s commitment to the future of Epiphany House as a thriving Conference & Retreat Centre is undoubted. The Trustees hope that a new chapter has begun, consolidating the achievements of recent years and responding to new opportunities.
