The Church of the Good Shepherd has a long established moderate Catholic tradition. We try to be a friendly and welcoming church, which meets the worship and spiritual needs of people from a wide range of traditions.. We welcome visitors and encourage newcomers to become involved at whatever level they feel comfortable with.

Our mission

As members of the Good Shepherd, we aim to “To bring more people to experience God’s love by making our church the much needed focus in the local community”.

Sunday Services

The main Parish Eucharist is at 10.15am.  There is a full team of servers and a choir who sing an anthem during communion and certain settings and other music as appropriate. Incense is used on festivals and other appropriate occasions. Common Worship is always used, with the Eucharistic prayer and other parts of the service varying according to the season.

On the third Sunday of each month there is one morning service designated as an All-age Eucharist. Younger people, families and those new to the Church are particularly encouraged to attend this. The overall format is similar to the regular pattern of worship but particular emphasis is placed on appropriate hymns, songs and other music and the service is, as far as possible, simplified. The address is normally aimed at children; those who are able to take part are encouraged to read lessons, lead intercessions and occasionally perform small pieces of music.

At 8am each Sunday there is a said celebration of the Eucharist with the congregation gathered in the choir stalls.  This also uses ‘Common Worship’ on most occasions with the a ‘Book of Common Prayer’ service on the first Sunday of each month.

There is an evening service each Sunday at 6:30pm. Occasionally the Sunday evening service may take a different form; for example a Taizé style service or “Visions of Prayer”.
