We are so glad that you’ve found the Church of the Good Shepherd. We are an Episcopal church with a welcoming and creative spirit. We revel in the rich history, mystery, and lived tradition of the Episcopal faith, which defines our worship. Whatever your spiritual background, whether you are a cradle Episcopalian, a curious catholic, or have in some other way felt a stirring of the spirit, you are welcome to visit. We know that it takes courage to take that first step through the doors of a new church – we understand because we have all been there at one time or another. No matter where you live, where you are from, who you love, what you do, or what you believe, you can be assured of a warm, respectful welcome. We are in Acton, but our members are drawn from many of the surrounding towns and neighborhoods. We love ceremony, but we certainly don’t stand on it – check out our Facebook page for a more informal glimpse of who we are and what we do.

We are also pleased to announce our next Adult Formation series, starting on May 17th! We’ll be taking a hop, skip, and a jump through the bible for five Wednesdays. For more information, read here!
