Worship

The Congregation of the Good Shepherd is a diverse and welcoming liturgical community who gather for worship every Sunday at 10 a.m. We celebrate Holy Communion on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.

Many of our members come from denominations that use a prayer book or printed order of service that follows a common pattern and this is reflected in worship at COGS. Each Sunday you could expect to sing together, hear Scripture read and a sermon or reflection on that Scripture and to pray for the world and its needs.

Worship at the Congregation of the Good Shepherd draws on a diversity of liturgical traditions and is shaped by the rhythm of the church year.  Our reading of Scripture follows the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL).

Children aged 3-14 are welcome to attend Sunday School every Sunday during worship time.  Throughout the year, particularly on festive occasions, we gather as a whole community for all-age worship.

Whatever your previous experience of Christian worship (high church, low church, no church) you are welcome to attend a service any Sunday or to contact the pastor (cogs@fastmail.fm) for more information.
