Welcome to the Church of the Good Shepherd, Battle Hill We have a beautiful modern building in Berwick Drive in the middle of the Battle Hill Estate, and a friendly congregation who would love to meet you and welcome you to our community, our services and our activities. Do come along, or contact us by phone or using the form on this website.
We are an ecumenical church - Church of England, Methodist and URC together, and also part of a Church of England 'team parish' with St Mary's in Howdon. We are led by clergy and lay people, and lots of people play an important part in our worship and our practical actions. There's a place for you here, and things you can help with if you wish.
**Coronavirus Situation** In line with the latest Government guidance about covid we will not be able to gather to worship in our building again from Thursday, 5th November. Our last act of worship in the church building before lockdown will be on Wednesday 4th November at 9.30am when we will hold our usual Holy Communion service. After this date and until further notice our church services will be held over Zoom on Sunday at 10am and Wednesday at 9.30am. We will continue to post sermons and worship material on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/goodshepherdbattlehill/ ) and also post some material on YouTube. To find the material on YouTube please type the following into your search engine (or modern TV): YouTube Willington Team. We will also continue to send out worship material for worship at home, hoping that those of you who want this will pray on a Sunday at 6pm. Those members of our congregation who do not have access to IT will continue to receive clerical letters and paper copies of worship material. Please contact us if you would like the Zoom details.
The news of this lockdown is disappointing, and it is sad that we can no longer meet in our beautiful church. We cannot change that, but we can still worship in unity as a church family and we can, and must, still pray for each other and support each other in whatever ways we can.
Please do get in touch if you would like to talk to us,
