About Church of the Good Shepherd

The Church of the Good Shepherd was opened in 1950 as a daughter church of St Peter's Farnborough due to the growth of the local Hawley Lane Housing Estate. The Good Shepherd officially became its own parish in July 1997 and is committed to sharing God’s generous love and hope with everyone, especially within the communities of North Farnborough.
Sunday services are held weekly at 10.30am which are live-streamed on YouTube too for those who prefer to watch from home. Thursday services are held monthly at 10.00am. Sunday gatherings are held monthly at 6.30pm. Church services for deaf people are held on the 3rd Sunday each month at 3.00pm (except in August, when there is a joint service at 10.30am).
