Epping Community Church

Our new Pastor, Reverend Paul Leonard has been leading our church for a couple of months now. Come and visit and hear the word of God that he shares with us every week. Our church service is at 9:00 am every Sunday morning in the sanctuary upstairs. This is followed by a time of fellowship downstairs. You can have a cup of coffee and some refreshments and chat with friends...old and new. Sunday School for all ages begins at 11:00 am. Reverend Leonard is also leading a Bible study on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm and also on Thursday mornings at 9:00 am at the church. We are located on the corner of Pleasant and Main Street. We are wheelchair accessible and have an elevator to take those in need upstairs. Come and see what we have to offer during our time of worship.

The Epping Community Care food pantry was very busy during the holiday season. We look forward to 2018 to help those who are in need of a hand up.

We would like to extend thanks to those who helped to make our outreach programs so successful. We are grateful to all of our volunteers who show up week after week to serve the clients at the food pantry. Our program runs solely on donations of food and money that we receive from many individuals and businesses from Epping and other surrounding towns. Thank you... thank you... WE all did a great job in 2017. We could not do what we do without everyone’s help.

We have our Coats of Caring program running right now during the cold winter months. Anyone is welcome to come in and get a warm coat at no cost. All coats have been donated by various individuals. We also have lots of hats and mittens and gloves available.

Our Soup of the Day Café is every Thursday from 11:00-12:30. Anyone in the community is welcome to come to this free lunch. We offer two different kinds of homemade soup, a salad, crackers, dessert and beverage. The conversation is always lively in our Fellowship hall. Come and have lunch with us and visit with old and new friends. We’d be glad to see you.

Our 3rd Saturday dinner in January will be January 20th. It starts at 5:00 and goes until 6:30. The menu will be turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, green beans, corn bread and homemade pies. The cost is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for kids. This is always a popular dinner. February 17th will be the next 3rd Saturday dinner. Look for details on our church sign on the corner for updates.

West Epping Quaker Meeting House

The West Epping Meeting grew out of the Seabrook Quarterly Meeting in the middle of the 18th century. Records show that Joshua Folsom was a recorded minister among Friends in the community in 1772 – though he may have commenced his activities even earlier. The present Meeting House was built in 1851. The surrounding tall pines, dating from this period, have been a distinguishing feature of West Epping Village.

West Epping Friends meet for silent worship at 10 am every first and third Sunday of the month. We welcome visitors to our meetings to join with us.
