Welcome to the St Barnabas' Church website!

St Barnabas' is a friendly Church of England parish church in St Paul's Cray, Orpington, Kent. We can be found in St Paul's Cray, on Rushet Road (just off Cotmandene Crescent). (map)

We aim to provide a warm welcome to all our visitors:  if you're local to us, or visiting the area, we look forward to seeing you. Wherever you're from, we hope you find something of interest on (or through) this site.


Silent Night Carols - Sunday 21st December at 6:30pm

Our Carols by Candlelight service this year has adopted the national theme of Silent Night Carols. This is an opportunity to come together as a community to sing carols, to remember the Christmas Eve truce of 1914 and to think about and support Tearfund in their work of providing aid to those innocent families displaced by war today, particularly in Syria. Please join us for tea, coffee and mince pies afterwards.

Messy Church at Christmas - Wednesday 24th December

Our last Messy Church of the year is our ever popular Christmas Eve session, starting at 3:30pm. This will follow the usual pattern of a time of craft activities, followed by a look at the Christmas story in our time of worship and then a chance to sit down and enjoy a meal together.  Admission is free and all are welcome.

Christmas Eve Midnight Holy Communion - Wednesday 24th December at 11:00pm

There will be no service at St Barnabas but, as last year, we are joining the service at St Mary's Church, St Mary Cray.

Christmas Day Family Holy Communion - Thursday 25th December at 10:30am

Our service on Christmas day will be a Family Holy Communion at 10:30am.

Sunday 28th December at 10:30am

Our last Sunday service of 2014 will be an end of year celebration, giving thanks for all that has happened during our jubilee year and a chance to look forward to what is ahead in 2015.
