St Barnabas is a place of friendship, learning, sharing, and worship
Public worship is suspended until further notice.
The people of St Barnabas have met for worship since 16th September 1979 where they first met at the Fraser Primary School.
As the congregation was established, a more attractive and centrally sited place became available at the Charnwood High School.
Eventually this also proved inadequate and when the congregation of St Thomas Aquinas built their church, the opportunity arose to meet in their spacious primary school hall.
Another move saw the congregation meeting in Cooinda Cottage, until the congregation finally moved to it’s current place of worship in Charnwood.
The name of the parish, St Barnabas is significant.
In the book of Acts in the new testament of the Bible records Barnabas, as a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith, is remembered for his life of faith and his good works of service and generosity.
That’s the culture of Saint Barnabas at Charnwood and carries that philosophy and heart today in how we serve others.
