Welcome to the St
Barnabas' Church website!
St Barnabas' is a friendly Church of England parish church
on Rushet Road (just off Cotmandene Crescent) in St Paul's Cray,
Orpington, Kent BR5 2PU. Although the distinctive green roof is clearly
visible from a distance, it becomes more difficult to find our church the closer
you get and you may wish to consult the map.
Our aim is to keep connected to God
through prayer, worship and teaching to enable us to be connected to our
world, responding to the needs of our community and sharing God's love in a
way that transforms lives.
We try to provide a warm welcome to all
our visitors: if you're local to us, or visiting the area, we
would be pleased to see you at one of our services or social events. Wherever you're from, we hope you
find something of interest on (or through) this site or one of our
social media feeds.

Please join us in praying for our local schools as they enter the time of
year when staff and students are concentrating on revision and examinations. It
is a time of stress for everyone involved in our young people's lives and a time
when we can give prayerful support and encouragement to parents, teachers and
support workers as well as the students themselves. Spinnaker Trust have
provided links to resources which may help us focus our prayers on the needs of
schools over the next two weeks and can be found here.
