Welcome to St Barnabas

Following Jesus & Extending God’s Love.

Welcome to St Barnabas Anglican Church

St Barnabas is a diverse Anglican Church with a strong commitment to Christ and a desire to share God’s love with the people of our community. We especially welcome newcomers or those returning to church after an absence. Each week we celebrate God’s amazing love and welcome as we share in communion and so it’s natural for us to want to extend that welcome to others. So why not join us at any of our regular weekly meeting times – you’ll find friendship and a community to share the journey of faith with.
