How We Help Our Community

Children and Youth Programs

Children and youth are a vital part of our community!

We aim to nurture our young people’s spiritual growth by building connections with their family, our parish life, the Anglican faith and our broader community.

At Epiphany, young people will

  • Find joy and glorify God through music and song

  • Make friends and build a community of faith

  • Experience worship through connections to the Anglican liturgy

  • Grow their relationship with God by learning how to pray

Programming is tailored to age and stage of development

  • Nursery program up to age 4

  • Junior Sunday school for ages 4–7

  • Senior Sunday school for ages 8–11

  • Youth program for ages 12–18

Young people at Epiphany will have many opportunities to interact with each other and our congregation. They will be encouraged and supported to participate in all aspects of parish life. We have a variety of exciting plans for children and youth to teach them about the bible, build fellowship, and engage them in our church community. For example:

  • Intergenerational services, planned and led by our youth

  • First Communion (ages 7+)

  • Servers and Crucifers who assist the Priest during the service (ages 10+)

  • Confirmation (ages 14–16)

  • Nursery volunteers (ages 12+ who have completed a babysitting course)

  • Christmas Pageant

  • Membership on committees (e.g., Children and Youth Advisory Council, Parish Council)

  • Outings as suggested by youth (e.g., ziplining, Flying Squirrel)

  • Fellowship activities, like board game nights and BBQs

Our youth are generous with their time, and we are happy to track and report on their volunteer hours.

Adult Learning and Fellowship

Epiphany offers many opportunities for learning and fellowship:

  • Join us for coffee hour after the 10:30 am Sunday service. 

  • Drop in to Creative Connections, a weekly social gathering on Tuesday mornings, from 10 am to noon. Enjoy refreshments and play a game of cards or chess, or bring your knitting or other crafts.

  • Take part in activities and events throughout the year, such as BBQs, potlucks, concerts and trivia nights. 

  • Sign up as a volunteer! 

Is music your thing?

With superb acoustics and our Phoenix organ and Boston grand piano, our musical services are full of joyful noise. We are blessed with a strong and creative choir, as well as soloists and the worship band (acoustic and electric guitars, percussion, flute). Join our choir or band to share your musical gifts with us.

Adult Christian education

We are passionate about Christian education and offer several ways for you to get involved and learn more about the Bible, about your faith, and about the new ways you can engage our church, our society and our world. Keep an eye on What’s New for the latest on our current education offerings.

How We Help Our Community

Epiphany regularly contributes food and money donations to the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard, where volunteers provide an emergency supply of food to people in crisis in our community, nearly half of whom are under the age of 19.

Epiphany is a member of the non-denominational Interchurch Refugee Group, along with several other churches in the region. The churches work together to sponsor and assist refugees to Canada.

Through regular contributions and special appeals, Epiphany has a long history of supporting the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund. PWRDF is the Canadian Anglican response for emergency relief, refugees, development, and justice.
