EPIPHANY

The North Buckingham Parish consists of the Villages of Akeley, Leckhampstead, Lillingstone Dayrell, Lillingstone Lovell and Maids Moreton as well as part of the town of Buckingham. Each of the congregations within the Parish endeavours to reflect a multi colourful richness and diversity of the respective communities embedded in Christian unity. Everyone, living within or outside the Parish, is very welcome to come and join any of our gatherings and add his or her personality to the richness of our Christian identity. Wether you are just browsing or looking for something specific in our website, we hope you will find our five Churches of interest, and would like to take part in our weekly worship or activities.

From the very young to the emphatically ‘not so young’ there’s a group to suit you, and we are waiting for you to join us.

Epiphany in the Christian calendar is celebrated on the 12 day of Christmas when the three Wise Men visited Jesus with their gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. It also gets combined with the Baptism of Christ by John the Baptist in the river Jordan.

The Western Church began celebrating the Epiphany in the 4th century where it was, and still is, associated with the visit of the magi (wise men) to the infant Jesus when God revealed himself to the world through the incarnation of Jesus. For Anglican Church, the season of Epiphany extends from 6 January until Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent leading to Easter.


Other traditions, including the Roman Catholic tradition, observe Epiphany as a single day, with the Sundays following Epiphany counted as Ordinary Time..
