New Here

New Here

Our invitation at Church of the Good Shepherd is that you would join us in knowing and making known the Real Jesus, for Real People, in and for the Real World.

Once North Carolina’s current COVID-19 concerns have abated further, our CGS family hopes — in God’s Providence — to  resume our former weekly rhythms.  So we have left most of our webpages intact (even though the physical gatherings described have been temporarily altered or suspended), to provide you with historical context

Please visit our Welcome page to obtain the most current information on our Sunday worship opportunities as they presently exist…

Location + Parking

Our church is situated approximately halfway between Duke University in Durham (4 miles) and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill (7 miles). We are easy to find, and parking is ample and free!

Our address is:

Church of the Good Shepherd
3741 Garrett Road
Durham, NC 27707

Wherever you may be located within the greater Durham-Chapel Hill area, we are close to you — Come worship with us!

What To Expect Inside

We hope you’ll find our worship service to be joyous and reverentially God-centered. We sing together, read Scripture together, pray together, and listen together to pastoral preaching. Our music style is blended, ranging from acoustic instrumentation and percussion to strings and brass. We sing ancient hymns and contemporary praise songs. We attempt to worship without pretense — whether with respect to our outward attire or our inner brokenness — and we invite you to join us in that same spirit !

Membership

We are so glad you are interested in joining us for Sunday activities at CGS and hope to see you soon. If you’re interested in exploring next steps, you can read more about church membership here.
