The Good Shepherd Mission is an independent evangelical church in Bethnal Green, East London. Our Mission Statement is: 'Loving Jesus, loving our neighbours, seeing lives transformed.' 

We are a welcoming church community that meets together to know Jesus Christ better, to worship him, to care for and encourage each other as we follow him.  We reach out to the needs of our neighbours with practical help and the message of Jesus Christ, because we believe that our greatest need is met in Jesus, and knowing him changes everything.

Background to post

Our previous full-time leader left us in September 2013 after 31 years’ service. The leadership team and church subsequently took time to pause, review our activities, work through some theological issues, and seek God’s leading. We have been very aware of God’s faithfulness and blessing during this time and are now ready to appoint a new church leader who will play their part in the continuation of God’s purposes in the East End of London and beyond. The Good Shepherd Mission operates with a mixed leadership team, which we believe operates best when there is a balanced mix of men and women on the team. This team has responsibility for oversight of all the church’s activities, its direction and mission, and the use and management of all its resources. The members of the church leadership team hold responsibility as both church leaders and charity trustees. The new leader will also be part of a small male sub-set of that team with additional responsibility for overseeing the faithfulness of the church to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
