  • 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.

  • 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.

    The Good Shepherd Church premise is centrally located in the parish and surrounded by a residential area. It is in an excellent position on a busy road.

    Today, the Good Shepherd is seeking to reach out with the Gospel of Jesus to a parish with an estimate of 12,000 people and we pray that the mission may long continue.
