Welcome To The Chief Executive

I am pleased to announce that the trustees have recently appointed Alan Wallace to the role of Chief Executive for the Epiphany Trust. We look forward to welcoming Alan to the team, with effect from January.

For your information, Alan will be joining us for the Carol Service at Epiphany House on Tuesday 12th December, should you wish to come and say hello. 

With every good wish, 

– Debbie Mitchell (Chair to the Board of Trustees)

In the meantime, a few words of introduction from Alan himself……. 

Hi my name is Alan Wallace and I have been appointed as the Chief Executive of Epiphany House starting in January 2024. What an exciting challenge!

I come from Northern Ireland and came to England in 1979 to train as a Church Army Officer for the Anglican Church. My ministry has included working as a Youth Worker in parishes and Youth Centres and as a National Youth Officer for the Church Mission Society. I have owned my own company (Events Management) and had the privilege of organising many Christian conferences over the years both nationally and world-wide. I lived and worked in New Zealand where I was an Associate Pastor and Church Manager and then came to Cornwall to be the Chief Executive at Truro Cathedral. Over the last few years I have been Director of the Royal Cornwall Museum and have worked for the Diocese of Truro in various roles, my present position as a Project Support Officer to 4 Deaneries.

I am married to Liz and we have 1 son called Fin who is at University in London studying Film Production.

Over many years I have visited and used many retreat centres both here in the UK and in New Zealand and been inspired, blessed and strengthened in my faith through each one.

I am looking forward to getting to know all the Trustees, Staff, Volunteers and those who use the great facilities here at Epiphany House. My prayer is that the House can continue to be used as a House of Prayer but that we can look at how the House can be sustainable and move forward in our changing world, so that more people come to know about the House and want to utilise the facilities on offer, finding peace and healing within.
