The weekend of 4th to 6th March 2022 St Barnabas will be hosting Taste & See! We will be welcoming back former TV Gladiator ‘Ace’ (real name Warren Furman) who visited St Barnabas in March 2020, just before the first lockdown. ‘Ace’ has a great story to share about his faith in Christ, and we will be hosting a full weekend with a varied programme, involving plenty of food, activities and fun!

Our full schedule for our Taste & See mission weekend can be found below.
