The Church of the Good Shepherd in Kips Bay, Manhattan, New York City, is an Episcopal Church. We are a member parish of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, which is a diocese of the Episcopal Church of the United States. We are thus a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

We claim to be Catholic, in that we are true to the historic Christian faith, as well as Protestant, in that we are truly reformed and evangelical. We have no required Confession of Faith, except the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds, which we share with all Christendom. The Holy Eucharist, otherwise known as the Lord’s Supper, is celebrated every week.

We worship in accordance with the Book of Common Prayer (1979), and sing hymns from the Hymnal (1982) and Lift Every Voice and Sing II (1993).

Our ordained ministry is the historic three-fold bishops, priests and deacons. Our lay people are ministers by virtue of their Baptism because we believe that the church is the “Body of which Jesus Christ is the head, of which all baptized persons are members.”
