These neighbouring rural parishes are located in the middle of southern New Brunswick on either side of the Saint John River. Worship in the Parish of Cambridge and Waterborough primarily occurs at Good Shepherd in Cambridge Narrows with occasional services at three other points surrounding. The Parish of Gagetown’s main building is St. John in the town of Gagetown with two other points up and down the river.
The parishes work closely together in scheduling services and other events. Worship is primarily from the Book of Alternative Services with occasional use of the Book of Common Prayer and other liturgies. Cambridge and Waterborough employs a licenced lay evangelist and both parishes have licensed layreaders and eucharistic assistants. Both parishes are involved in community outreach. A relatively new and large rectory is located in Gagetown.
