    Lent Appeal - Jars of Change for WaterAid

  Once again some of the younger members of our church have challenged our social conscience and asked
  us to support the work of WaterAid in bringing safe drinking water and sanitation to some of the poorest
  communities around the world. We are all asked to collect our loose change each day through the period of
  Lent, put it into an empty jam jar and then bring it to church at Easter as part of our offering. 



2014 - St Barnabas' Church Jubilee Year

This year marks 50 years since our church building was consecrated and we are therefore celebrating this Jubilee Year with a number of special events. These will include a Fun Day in July and celebration service and lunch in September. 

Historical video footage covering the building of the church has been transferred from film to digital media by Andy Fordham and uploaded to YouTube, you may like to view it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfZ5zhQsRRw 

We are currently collecting memorabilia or written records that relate to significant events that have taken place at St Barnabas. If you have anything which you think will be of interest to a wider audience, please contact the Parish Office by phone or email.
