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.

Good Shepherd Parish Church


Thursday April 15th 2021 2pm. CHURCH WEBCAM AND PHONE LINES

As you may be aware that the phone lines and broadband service to the church and parish office have been down since Monday afternoon. This was due to to the works that are ongoing in the former parochial house. The phone line which goes from the church to Nutgrove Avenue was damaged when these works began on Monday last. We contacted our service provider who assured us that an engineer would call yesterday. Unfortunately this did not happen and no contact was made to the parish to offer an explanation. Thankfully we were able to get a the connection temporarily restored while we await the service provider to call to the parish, which they have assured us will be today. The parish Webcam and  phone line is now operating again.
Sincere apologies for the inconvenience and upset this has caused over recent days. Thank you for your understanding.
