The Church of the Good Shepherd, located near Shilin station in Taipei, Taiwan is a unique, English-language multicultural parish. We are a congregation of Taiwanese, Australian, British, Hong Kong, Nigerian, Singaporean, South African, US, and many other nationalities. While some members are “cradle Episcopalians,” we also include many Anglicans from around the world, as well as those from mainline or liturgical traditions that worship with us while in Taiwan.
The English congregation is a sister congregation to the Taiwanese congregation, which worships in Mandarin. There are two priests, Rev. Keith Lee, our rector, and Rev. Dr. Herbert Barker, our priest-in-charge, who leads the English congregation. In addition we have an executive committee for the English congregation, and a shared vestry together with the Taiwanese congregation.
