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.

Announcement

Women's World Day of Prayer

The annual Women's World Day of Prayer is Friday 6th March this year. St Barnabas will be hosting one of the three services in the Orpington area at 2:00 pm, the others will be: 11:00 am at St Michael's and All Angels, Crofton Road, Orpington and 7:00 pm at Christ Church, Charterhouse Road, Orpington.

'Women's World day of Prayer is about men and women of all ages worshipping and praying together using a liturgy prepared by the Christian women of a particular country, this year The Bahamas.  WWDP is not FOR women but FROM women: it is women's gift to the whole church, to everyone irrespective of age, gender, denomination, politics or anything else. It is thought of not as a one-day wonder for women but as a learning, sharing and caring experience for the whole Christian community that lasts a whole year.' 

The theme chosen by the Christian women in The Bahamas is Jesus said to them: Do you know what I have done for you? John 13 v 12.

All welcome.

 

Once again we have been challenged by some of our younger church members to support the WaterAid 'Jars of Change' Lent Appeal. Please use the period of Lent to collect the loose change in your pockets or purses to fill glass jar. At Easter please bring the jars of change to church so that they can be added to our donation. More information about the Lent Appeal and the projects that it will support can be found on the WaterAid website, please click on the Appeal banner above.
