New to Us

Welcome to Good Shepherd!Welcoming Ministry at the front door

Inspired by the centuries-old Anglican tradition, we stand at the intersection of the earliest Christian beliefs and the rapidly changing contemporary world. We energetically engage with our neighbors in Fairfax County and the world. We welcome people of every background to worship God and serve the world in God’s┬áname.

We intend for our community to be one of generous hospitality, transformative mission, rigorous Christian education, and robust faith and worship. We are members of the Episcopal Church, which means our community is part of a larger regional church body, and a national governing body. Every member has a voice in church matters. Whether a cradle Episcopalian or a newcomer to the faith, please come and join us.

Parish Mission: The Church of the Good Shepherd is a Christ-centered community sharing God’s love.
Parish Vision: We strive to strengthen faith, build community, serve others
