“John Denver” concert a great success

Jeremy Smith sings John Denver 


On Sunday July 31st at 2 pm our friend Jeremy Smith – world’s greatest John Denver tribute artist – gave a concert at our little church. The concert was well attended and everyone thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon full of music, something that has been missing from Epiphany since the start of the pandemic. 

Jeremy started off the concert with songs made famous by the likes of Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and Frankie Valli. This was followed by a gospel tune, a country ballad and a weird by wonderful rendition of Homegrown Tomatoes made famous by Guy Clark. After that Jeremy moved into his strength as a performer, John Denver songs.

It was a great afternoon of music, One we will remember for a long time.

Thanks Jeremy.

Connie is 100

Hi Everyone

Here’s some pictures from Connie Chatterton’s 100th birthday

Intro to Ramadan


Above is a picture of our friend and neighbour, Nazia along with Rev. Teresa and Judy


A few weeks ago our Muslim neighbours Nazia & Humaira (Members of ICNA Sisters London) contacted Epiphany through our website with the following beautiful words.

Rev. Teresa responded and the result was a small informal get together last week. I have added a couple of links at the bottom of this post for those of us who wish to know more about our Muslim neighbours and the celebration of Ramadan.

Greetings of Peace and everlasting Health!

I am writing to you today to express my wish to extend a small symbol of my respect and neighborly love for you and your Church community.  I am a Muslim neighbor of yours and a member of a Muslim women’s organization called ICNA Sisters Canada, and we are reaching out to you in friendship and goodwill.

This year as we celebrate Eid, which is a celebration at the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting, we want to share our happiness with you. Islam teaches us, as I believe Christianity does too, to spread love and peace and instructs us to begin with those nearest to us. Moreover, not only are we neighbors but brothers and sisters in the Abrahamic tradition. As Muslims, we honor and recognize the immense love for God the Creator that you, as Christians, have in your hearts and see your dedication to all things good as an example for humanity. If you would like, we would love to drop by and hand you a small Eid gift some time/date to your preference.

Shine a Blue Light – In honour of Alexandra Stemp


Shine a Blue Light


It’s not what you want to think about

this time of year

It’s not what you want to think about


but here it is, an exquisite young life

cut short

by unimaginable tragedy

This beautiful young girl,


the result of a terrible accident.


What could be better for a young girl

than a Girl Guide Brownie meeting

with friends, teachers, leaders?

Who could have known a safe

supervised walk home would result

in such tragedy?


Light up a blue candle.

Shine a blue spotlight on your porch.

Tie a blue ribbon on your lamp post.

Say a prayer for little Alexandra;

and another for her family;

and another for the emergency crews

that attended and gave such loving care

to little Alexandra.

And, find it in your heart

to say another for the driver of the car

that ended a bright young life

in such a tragic way.
