  • Exploring Faith

    At the Good Shepherd we base what we believe and do on the Bible, and try to help people find a living faith in Jesus Christ.

    The church has an evangelical approach to its life together and we welcome people from all backgrounds and traditions.

    Sunday services are important, but so is our everyday faith. We have plenty of reflections, prayers and stories to help you find and follow God in everyday life.
