Children at Epiphany

A programme for children is offered weekly for one hour to coincide with our 9:30 a.m. service on Sundays. It is a structured programme that does not assume any previous knowledge of Christian teaching.

The programme does require commitment from children and parents/carers. It will follow the Church’s Year and lead to Baptism, Holy Communion and Confirmation.
Kids Song & Story Parachutew Friday Mornings 9:30 to 10:30 during school terms. A social hour for preschool children and caregivers. Contact Anne Owen, 06 377 4505
Epiphany Mothers’ Union

MU-1WELCOME to the Epiphany Mothers’ Union Branch.

Our meetings are held on the FIRST TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH, starting at 1.45pm with a service in the Church. We then usually move into our newly renovated hall for our programme or occasionally we have an outing for members.

We are a very active group within the Wellington Diocese and the majority of members are active in some way within the life of our parish. We have also been instrumental in creating a rose garden around the boundary of our newly refurbished parking area of the church grounds, one of which is the Mary Sumner Rose. Part of our outreach is to support our annual Refugee visit to the parish and to financially support a child to attend the Riversdale Christian camp annually.

If you are looking to join such a group as this or are planning to visit the Wairarapa and looking for a Mothers’ Union group to visit, then you will be very welcome. Our programme for this year is below and provides an interesting range of speakers and activities.

Please don’t hesitate to make contact either through our Parish Office which is open weekly Monday – Friday from 9am – 12 noon (06 378 2169) or phone the Branch Leader, Cheryl Hansen (06 378 0017). We look forward to your company.
