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.
