Parish Small Groups

There are a number of mid-week Bible Study groups in the parish meeting at different times and places throughout Christchurch. Speak to the Rev. Jenny Wilkens if you’d like to join a group or simply get some more info!

Below is a sample of some of our Small Groups which meet together regularly to eat, pray, read and study the Scriptures.

Women at the Well

This is a Bible Study group for women meeting at 9.30 on Tuesday mornings. The group begins with tea or coffee – there is a crèche available – and then they move to the ‘Upper Room’ for the study of the scriptures, prayer and support. Call Pip on 351 7392 for more information.


This group meets each month exploring themes in contemporary Christianity – all welcome. Phone the Parish Office for more information.


Blacksmiths is a men’s group that grew out of Lifestreams. They meet each week looking to grow through engagement with God’s word, being accountable and encouraging each other in faith. Phone the Parish Office on 351 7064 for more information.

We believe in the power and importance of prayer ministry. As such, here at St Barnabas we make sure that prayer ministry is made available both on Sundays and throughout the week. If you have a prayer request or would like more information please contact the Parish Office on 351 7064.
