Our Parish


Welcome to the parish of Good Shepherd, Churchtown.

It is our hope that our website will contribute to uniting all who live here and help to build up community, so that people will be fulfilled in their own lives and families, and be willing to share their time and talents for the benefit of their neighbour, parish and community.
