Welcome to the
Church of the Good Shepherd.
We are a parish in the
Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina
nestled in the heart of downtown Raleigh
just one block west of the State Capitol.
We are a community of Christians walking together in our journey to learn from and follow Jesus.
We are diverse in thought and personal beliefs,
but united in our love of Christ.
ALL are welcome here.
No matter where you are in your personal journey of faith, we invite you to come walk with us.
God loves you. No exceptions.
When we say that, we mean it.

Franz Joseph Haydn’s
Seven Last Words of Christ
Commissioned in 1787 for a Good Friday liturgy at the Cathedral of Cádiz, Spain, this set of seven short pieces is intended to be interspersed with spoken reflections on the seven last words of Jesus from the cross. Members of our own congregation will read the reflections. The The Lyricosa Quartet will perform Haydn’s haunting score.
"Where do I park when I visit Good Shepherd?"
We know parking can be tricky in the bustling downtown of a vibrant capital city. Read on for the inside scoop on parking at Good Shepherd:
Our dedicated surface lot is very space-limited and typically is reserved for those among us with mobility issues. However, diagonally across the street from that lot on the corner of Morgan and McDowell Streets is the Municipal Building's Parking Garage which is open to the public. The best part is that it's FREE on Sundays! In addition, we're surrounded by plenty of on-street parking that also is free on Sundays!
"But what if I want to visit during the week?" you may be asking. For short visits, and space permitting, you may park in the circular drive in front of our Parish Life Center or in the small surface lot we mentioned above. The city's parking garage also remains an option. Click HERE for a fee schedule.
