What would a typical Sunday morning will be like at St Barnabas Church
On Sunday we have two services;
9.00am - 10:00am
This is a fairly formal style of Service and it includes Holy Communion each week.
10.30am - until 11:30 / 12:00noon (depending on the service type)
An Informal style of Service ideally suited to families of all ages. On the 2nd and 4th Sunday there is an Informal Communion Service with children having their own 'Sunday School'..
As you arrive you will receive a warm greeting from one of our welcome team.
You will also be given a leaflet with details on the church service, Bible reading, notices and other relevant information.
You will find our building to be modern, bright and comfortable.
If you are attending St Barnabas for the first time with a young family your greeter will explain the various children's and youth activities that we offer.
After a welcome and prayer the church worship team will lead the congregation through a time of praise and worship. The worship team will play a range of instruments which include guitar and keyboard, we trust that you will find our style both contemporary and worshipful.
The words of the songs will be displayed on a large screen in front of the church, please ask if you have difficulty reading from the screen.
If you are happy for your children to join one of the activities, an announcement will be made during the service for the children and youth to leave for their own activities.
After the children and youth have left for their various activities, the vicar, a church member or an invited guest will deliver a relevant and encouraging message from the bible. This period will include a Bible reading, prayer and possibly communion.
After the service everyone is invited to the hall for a time of refreshments, greeting and making new friends. Please be sure to share a coffee or tea with us. Soft drinks are provided for children.
