St Barnabas Church

Is there a God? Yes

       Welcome to St Barnabas Church
                 Hemel Hempstead

We are a local church which seeks to serve our community of Adeyfield. We do this in two ways:

 1)  Telling people about Jesus, A man who lived and died 2,000 years ago. However, we
       are not a museum talking about what he did in his life but we believe he rose up from
       the grave. Crazy huh! We celebrate this on Easter Sunday. As he is alive and now is
       in heaven, we believe it is good to get to know him and how he wants to talk to us.
      This is so important as we also believe that death is not the end for us also. There is
      more to come. 

 2) Using our church building to bless our community with activities like the St Barnabas
     Pre-school, Toddlers, Youth clubs, Dance groups, NHS Blood Donner sessions etc.


For whatever reason why you want to come to St Barnabas I pray you will feel welcomed.

 God Bless

A big thank you to Hemel Hempstead Lions Club for the gift of £250 towards the replacement of lighting following a failure. This has helped to fully restore use of the church to support the community with activities like blood donors, majorettes, AA and a playgroup. I
