The Church of the Good Shepherd is situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo amongst the natural beauty of the lake and the mountains. The Church of the Good Shepherd was built to the glory of God as a memorial to the pioneers of the Mackenzie Country...more
Such a scenic location, the church of the good shepherd was a lovely quiet place to sit inside with relaxing Christian music playing whilst enjoying Gods amazing creation from the church window. No photos allowed inside the church
When we visited the church interior was closed, so we had to content ourselves with seeing the outside. It's a small but attractive building located close to the lake and not far from the town (an easy walk). Nice views out over the lake from...More

I really enjoyed my time here. Although there were hoards of tourists outside the church, once inside it was peaceful and tranquil. Amazing views of the lake makes this place the perfect spot for some quiet time and reflection.
Located at panoramic area. Just short walking from lake tekapo holiday park. Beautiful place with bridge, lake view, easy access and plenty of parking. Suitable place for stargazing at night.
Bit crowded if you go during peak season as everyone wants to capture the church.
