Epping Community Church

Our church service is at 9:00 am every Sunday morning. We are worshipping downstairs in the Brodhead Annex during the winter months. Come in the side entrance and we will greet you before the service. Following the service we have a coffee hour in Fellowship Hall. Sunday School is at 11:00 am for all ages including an adult class. We are located on the corner of Main and Pleasant Streets and our phone number is 679-5542.

Our search committee is continuing the process to find a new pastor for the church. We have had some wonderful interim preachers that have brought the word of God to our congregation and we are so thankful to all of them. Current time frame projects that we will have a new pastor in our pulpit in the fall.

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 18th we will be offering corned beef and cabbage with turnips, carrots and potatoes. We’ll also have Irish soda bread and some wonderful pies. On April 15th we will be preparing a turkey dinner with all of the fixings. The dinners are always $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children.  

The Ladies Aide group at the church will be baking various kinds of pies to sell at the election. They will all be $10.00 each. You can bring them home to enjoy or put in your freezer to enjoy later. Look for their table before they run out.

The Food Pantry continues be very busy. We are so fortunate to have wonderful volunteers that 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 from 8:00 -10:00 am. If you have questions you can call the church at 679-5542 and we’ll return your call.

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. We will box up the coats in April and put them away until next winter. We will still offer some lighter coats and sweaters in the spring.

Our Soup of the Day Café is every Thursday from 11:00-12:30. We always offer two delicious 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.

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.
