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.


The Bishop of Rochester has confirmed that the Institution of the Revd. Neil Coleman as Vicar of St Barnabas, Cray will take place on Saturday 13th June 2015 at 3:00 pm. All welcome.


Quiz Night - Saturday 21st March at 7pm.

Please join us for our Quiz Night on Saturday 21st March at 7:00pm in the Vincent Matthews Hall, St Peters Lane, St Paul's Cray. Entrance is 2 per person and you are welcome to come along as an individual and join a team on the night or come with your friends as a ready made team. Entrance includes tea, coffee soft drinks and nibbles, but you are welcome to bring along your own drinks if you would prefer. Prizes for the top three teams.

As well as an opportunity to test your knowledge and relax with your friends, you will have the chance to hear Jo, one of our mission partners talk about her 20 years of working in SE Asia bringing hope to exploited women through the Starfish Project. She will also have a range of jewellery made by these women available for purchase. 

All welcome, bring your friends.


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.
