Church of the Good Shepherd

Who We Are

A community of faithful Christians, committed to the proclamation - through word and action - of God's redemptive love for the world. A small church with a big heart. We come from all over the Blackstone Valley and surrounding areas and reach out to our nearby neighbors in many ways.

Our Services

Service Times

  • 10:00am - Holy Eucharist Rite II (Holy Communion contemporary language)

What to Expect

What are services like?
Traditional worship from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, with a mix of music accompanied on organ, keyboard, and guitar. Children are welcome in our services, or they may attend Sunday School during the first half of the service and join their families in the church at the mid-point.

What is the community like?
We are a small, loving group of people who have many ties to each other but who also welcome newcomers. The folks in our pews include teachers, restaurant workers, health care professionals, retired people, and folks with various disabilities; folks who are married, single, straight, gay, widowed, raising children or grandchildren, or caring for aging parents.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are welcome to join us for worship and for a blessing at the altar during communion. Our priest welcomes conversations with people who wish to learn more about following Jesus.
