About us

On Sunday we have two regular Sunday services, 8:30am and 10am at the Church of the Good Shepherd.  The 8:30am service is a Said Communion, followed by breakfast on the third Sunday of each month. 

Our 10am service also takes place around the Eucharist.  The last Sunday of the month our service is all-age at which some of the children help us in our worship, playing music, singing and leading prayers.For the rest of the month the children and the young people are invited to join the Sunday club 'Cogs' which meets in the hall.  For younger children we have a lively crèche in the North Aisle, for children aged 3-6 years old there is also 'Sprockets' with 'Godly Play' sessions in the side chapel.

We also have a regular healing ministry, offered month by month, by the laying on of hands in the context of worship, either during the service or the chapel.  Every week, after the 10am service tea & coffee is served in the hall.

There is wheelchair access to the church through the North door, on the left hand side of the church. There is a disabled toilet and baby change facilities in the church hall.  The church is also equipped with a loop system for compatible hearing aids, simply adjust your settings to ‘T’. 

Our Vicar is David Maher, joined the church in September 2007.  He is assisted by Judith Gretton-Dann (Curate), Rachel Blanchflower (Curate), John Polkinghorne (Honorary Curate), Linda Dean (Licensed Minister) and Harry Rose (Retired Priest).  Our Churchwardens are Fiona Blows and Phil Morris.  As a Church we enthusiastically support Lay Ministry and a number of the church have recently qualified in the Diocesan Authorised Lay Ministry scheme, in Pastoral Care, Music, Social Action and Administration.
