What if I’m not Episcopalian


Remembering Who We Were

History of Church of the Good Shepherd

The first Episcopal services in Dunedin, marking the beginning of our Good Shepherd congregation, were held in December 1886. Our first congregation numbered about 16 persons. The Right Reverend Edwin G. Weed, consecrated in August as Bishop of Florida, visited the community during the Christmas season, preached, confirmed four persons, and celebrated the Holy Eucharist. Following that visit the little congregation petitioned the Bishop for missionary oversight, having raised $340 toward support of the work. They were soon put under the care of the Reverend William H. Noyle who also visited Clearwater Harbor and Tarpon Springs.


COGS History - Original Church

Celebrating Who We Are

the-episcopal-church-sealThe Church of the Good Shepherd is part of The Episcopal Church and the world-wide Anglican Communion. Our Christian heritage is over 2,000 years old, our Anglican tradition is over 500 years old, our American denomination is over 200 years old, and our Dunedin congregation is over 130 years old.

There are several Episcopal churches in northern Pinellas County, and we strive to collaborate with and support each other. Each of these Episcopal Churches is part of the Clearwater Deanery, which has its own Facebook Page. In addition, we have strong ties to other congregations in the area, occasionally worshiping or doing service projects together.

Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord; let us exalt his Name together.
