Our Presbyter’s Message

Welcome to the Church of the Epiphany’s website. I am glad you have chosen to spend a few moments exploring and discovering our Church family. Whenever I describe the Church of the Epiphany to people, I intentionally use the word – ‘family.’

We are a family committed to following Jesus. That means we worship Him with vigour and joy. We encourage prayer in Church and in personal life. It also means we love people outside the Church through generosity, invitation, fellowship and compassion. Our hope and aim is that all people may feel loved and welcomed at the Church. We want that for you. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly – seek the truth of God, that can only be known when one knows Jesus. Remember He gave His life on the cross for you.

While you browse through our website, you will learn about our programmes and get a glimpse of out-going ministries of the Church. I invite and welcome you to our Church, serving the Nation and witnessing the love of Christ since 1866, to our worship services in English and Hindustani. Do feel the in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together with the Spirit of God present amongst us.

God bless.

The Rev. Daman Derick Rodgers
Presbyter in charge 

History

The Church of the Epiphany was originally built to cater to the spiritual needs of the few British civil and military officers posted in Gurgaon during the 1860s. The quaint structure of the original church building dates back to 1862. Its architecture and design are reminiscent of the small chapels of the Victorian era.

You can read a more detailed account of the history of the original church building on our Heritage Church page.

Eventually, in response to the needs of a growing congregation, the new church building was consecrated in 2009. And the following year, 2010, we also acquired and fenced in a new cemetery in Sector 56, Gurgaon.
