Welcome to the website of Epiphany Church in Newport, NH, a church dedicated to mission through outreach to the community. We are now in the  Season of Pentecost, celebrating  the sending out of Christ’s disciples ton spread his Gospel to the world!!

Each Wednesday at 9:15 am we offer Wednesday Worship, either Holy Eucharist or Morning Prayer.

On  Sunday June25,  we plan a 10 am service of Morning Prayer, led by our Congregation. No coffee hour, as Sunshine Diner will be from 4 until 6 pm. All welcome, free will offering.

On Sunday July 2 the Rev. Kelly Sundberg Seaman will preside at a service of Holy Eucharist at 10 am.

We are very happy to welcome Naoko Hague, who will accompany our singing on the organ or the piano this summer!

We are now a Mission of the Diocese of New Hampshire. We look forward with joy and anticipation to the future as we continue to do the work Jesus has asked of us, as we expand our ministry to the wider community! We are exploring an even closer collaboration with St. Andrew’s this year, while continuing to work with other Newport churches to foster God’s work in this world.

We met at length with our Bishop on June 7, and –

With a willing spirit, the Church of the Epiphany is launching a new vision of how we worship, and how we join with God’s mission in our neighborhood. Both Bishop Rob and Canon Kevin were moved and impressed by Epiphany’s eagerness for renewal, and we have their full support. There are 3 key aspects of this renewal:

1) Our WORSHIP SPACE will be re-ordered, using the main space of the nave, on a single level. The baptismal font will be moved to a central place. One end of the space will hold the ministry of the Word (the readings and our responses), the other end will be where we celebrate Holy Communion, gathered around a newly constructed altar table. A team of parishioners is working hard and quickly to effect this transformation. Can you lend a hand?

2) UPBEAT CHOIR: Launched following a children’s singing camp August 14-18, Epiphany’s liturgy will be influenced by the music of UpBeat, a children’s singing group. Upbeat Afterschool (on Fridays) will join our Monday Epiphany 4H Explorers program, as we serve God by providing opportunities for the children of Newport and nearby.

3) Our WORSHIP TIME: from August 19, the Saturday following the summer UpBeat camp, Epiphany will worship on Saturday evenings at 5 pm. It may make sense for our fellowship time after worship to become a light supper.

 Read on! And we hope you will visit our church as well! We are open to all who seek to deepen their knowledge and love of God!
