What Services Do We Have?

This is an early morning ‘said’ Communion service using the Book of Common Prayer
On the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays, Morning Worship takes the form of Holy Communion from Common Worship. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays, the service is less formal. With some sung worship, activities and a talk, as well as prayer.
Each week, following the service there is time for refreshments and getting to know each other better.
An opportunity through craft and other activity, celebration, and a shared meal to discover more about the Christian faith as we worship God together.
Messy Church is usually held on the third Saturday of each month, but exact times and dates are advertised on our home page or on the ‘Events’ page.
This is a time for us to get together and bring the needs of the world, people and the Church to God in prayer. Everyone is very welcome as we explore prayer together.
This service is usually held on the second Sunday of each month and begins at 4pm in the winter and 6pm in the summer.
This is a mid-week shortened Holy Communion Service at 9.30am followed by refreshments and an opportunity to chat .
Breathing Space is our take on the Cafe Church format. Breathing Space is an opportunity to step away from the busyness of everyday life, take time to breathe and consider big questions. Why are we here? Who is God?
Our aim is for this service to have a relaxed and informal café style, which meets once a month on a Sunday afternoon and is easily accessed by those with little or no church background.

  • Celebrating Our 80th Birthday

    The church grew out of a Women’s Friendly Group in Shelthorpe, a pre-war housing estate on the south side of Loughborough, in the 1930s. The church was built in 1938 as a Mission Church as part of the larger Emmanuel Parish. By the late fifties a need was felt for a building that could house the many social events.

    The Parish of Shelthorpe was established in 1969. The name was changed to The Good Shepherd, Loughborough in 1979.
