Holy Eucharist

All are invited to share in the Bread and Wine, the Body and Blood of Christ, at God’s Table, the Altar. You are welcome here! You do not have to be an Anglican to receive Holy Communion, once you are a Communicant in your own Church you are welcome to share the Sacrament of Holy Communion at Good Shepherd. If you choose not to receive, you are invited forward for a blessing. If someone cannot come to the church to receive the Eucharist due to illness or some other reason, please contact us at 663-2153 or rector@goodshepherdtt.org. Arrangement will be made for the Priest of Lay Minister to administer sick communion.

Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer takes place at Good Shepherd, Tunapuna twice a week on Sunday at 6.45 and on Tuesdays at 6 am. These services use time-honoured forms, along with readings from the Bible and the meditative readings of the Psalms to allow scripture to deepen our prayerful relationship with God.

Worship at the Big Tent

Our historic Church building is currently undergoing extensive renovation work. As a result, our services are now been conducted in a large tent on the eastern side of the Church grounds. The Good Shepherd "Big Tent" has caught the imagination of both parishoners and visitors alike. Some are saying that it is adds a biblical dimension to worship at Good Shepherd. Indeed, Archdeacon Baldeo has drawn a parallel to the Calling of Abram in the Book of Genesis:

From there Abram moved on to the hill country east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel to the west and Ai to the east. There he built an altar to the LORD, and he called on the name of the LORD - Genesis 12:8.

Learn more about the theological significance of the tent in this wonderful sermon delivered by Archdeacon Baldeo to mark the first celebration of the Holy Eucharist at our "Big Tent" (June 17, 2018).

As usual there is lots of parking available at the Good Shepherd Playground on Morton Street (North).
