Episcopalians, and particularly the people of the Church of the Good Shepherd, are famous for their hospitality to all who come seeking the holy. Our hospitality begins here, with links to a variety of good places to learn about being a follower of Jesus Christ in the Episcopal / Anglican tradition.

The Episcopal Church's presence in Covington, Newton County, and the surrounding area since 1950, we are a parish of the Diocese of Atlanta, "challenging ourselves and the world to love like Jesus as we worship joyfully, serve compassionately, and grow spiritually."
