Epping Community Church

We would like to invite you to our worship service at 9:30 am every Sunday morning. We have fellowship after service every week so you can meet new friends while enjoying coffee and a treat. Sunday School is over for the year and will resume in September. We have a prayer group and Bible study every Thursday from 9:30-11:00 am. Anyone is welcome to attend, to study and pray. You can find out more information about our church at eppingcommunitychurch.org.

In July and August we will not have as many activities at the church. You may notice some cookouts in the driveway every once in a while... stop in and have a bite to eat and meet some new people. Last year we had some movies in the driveway!!! Lots of fun! You may see the big screen on the side of the church... come on over!

We will take a little break from our normal dinner activities. There will not be any 3rd Saturday dinners in July or August. We will return for our regular dinners in September. Look for announcements in local establishments and on our sign out in front of the church.

Our Epping Community Cares food pantry is open every Saturday from 8:00-10:00 am. You can stop in and get whatever your family needs. Our volunteers are there to help you. Our Soup of the Day Café is on Thursday from 11:00-12:30. Anyone in the community is welcome to come to this free lunch. We will be offering various menus during the summer including, steamed hot dogs, green salads, pasta salads, Italian sandwiches and other yummy lunch items. We will be taking a break for vacations this summer. We will be closed on July 4th and also the month of August, returning the first Thursday in September.

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.
