Epping Community Church

Our worship service is at 9:30 am every Sunday morning. If you come in the side entrance there is elevator access to the 2nd floor where our sanctuary is. The Hope nursery is also on the 2nd floor. We will greet you before the service and also invite you to a time of fellowship following the service. You can have a cup of coffee and some kind of baked goodie. It’s a great time to meet new people or see old friends! Sunday School is at 11:00 am. There is a Bible study and prayer group that meets every Thursday from 9:30-11:00 am. A new Bible study called Starting Point will be on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00 pm, beginning March 13th. All are welcome to join either group. We are located on the corner of Main and Pleasant Streets and our phone number is 679-5542.

During Lent and Easter we have many events planned. The Ladies Aide of the church will have Lenten calendars and cups for all who want to participate. Our Ash Wednesday service will be on March 6th at 7:00 pm. On Thursday April 17th, there is a Maundy Thursday service at 6:30 pm. There will be a Good Friday service on April 18th. Easter is on April 21st. There will be a sunrise service on top of Harvey’s Hill. Check for the time on our sign in front of the church. At 9:00 am, we will have our Easter worship service to celebrate our risen Lord!! Come to one... or come to all services... you are invited and welcome!!

Our 3rd Saturday dinners continue to be very popular. We serve from 5:00-6:30 pm and you can get a dinner to go if you’d like! March 16th we will be offering corned beef and cabbage with turnip, carrots and potatoes. We’ll also have Irish soda bread, brownies and ice cream. On April 20th we will return to our popular turkey dinner with all the fixings! The dinners are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. We have to-go containers if you want to take a meal home.

The food pantry continues to be very busy. We are so fortunate to have wonderful volunteers who help us to serve clients each week. Other volunteers stock shelves on Thursdays so that we are prepared for Saturday morning. The pantry is open Saturdays from 8:00-10:00 am. If you have questions you can call the church at 679-5542 and we’ll return your call. If you’d like to volunteer... call the church we’d love to have you, one day or many!

We also offer coats, hats, mittens, gloves and other cold weather gear to our clients. Thank you to all that have donated to this as well. Please note that we do not accept clothing due to limited space.

Our Soup of the Day Café is every Thursday from 11:00-12:30. We offer two homemade soups as well as salad, crackers, dessert and beverage. The Café is a free lunch open to everyone in the community. Please come and join us!! Because of our crazy New England weather, if the Epping Schools are delayed or canceled... the Soup Café will be closed. We welcome you all to have some soup and visit with everyone.

We are excited to also note that the Harvey Mitchell library will be residing in our Brodhead Annex while they are in the building process for their home. This should be an exciting time for all involved. Look for more information coming up.

Meals On Wheels is located in our facility Monday thru Friday. They have drivers that deliver to homebound people as well lunch that is served in our fellowship hall. If you know a senior that could benefit from this program, call 679-1609.

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.
