Services at St Barnabas
Our Sunday Services are a mix of worship in the church building and online. You can watch our services live on our YouTube channel here or catch up with our previous broadcasts below. Everyone is welcome to join us both online or in person as we gather together each Sunday and all of our services we have on a Sunday can be seen below
9:30AM – Morning Praise
A mix of traditional and contemporary worship
11:15AM – Praise Together
With music from our worship band. This is the service where our children’s groups run.
6:30PM – Evening Praise
more informal, band-led worship
We also gather for simple services of communion, every first Sunday of the month at 8AM and every Wednesday at 9.30AM.
Children and Young People
Children and young people are welcome at all our services. At our 11.15 service children aged 3-14 are invited to head out to children’s groups during the service where they get to hear about Jesus and the bible in age appropriate ways. Younger children and babies are welcome to remain in the church, but if parents want a bit more space there is an unstaffed creche area at the back of church with toys and space to change and feed your baby. Our older teenagers meet after the evening service to hang out, read the bible and speak about issue facing them. For more details about the children and young people’s work see both on Sunday and in the week see our page on youth and children’s work.
Worshipping God, in-person and online, is the heart of what we do at St Barnabas. Everyone is welcome. We’d love you to join us to worship God together! On Sunday, we meet in church at 9.30 am, 11.15 am and at 6.30 pm. In our worship we study the Bible, we pray, we break bread (communion) and enjoy Christian community.
