Croseo i Eglwys Sant Barnabas -
Welcome to Saint Barnabas Church
Welcome to Our New Curate, Julie!
If you're looking for a place to worship, or just tired
of all the running around and wanting to visit the
Church to get a
bit of space, why don't you come and
join us? You're assured of
a great welcome and a combination of traditional and
family ("child-friendly") worship in a relaxed setting.
We're part of the
Anglican Church in Wales. Our roots go way back to
the ancient Celtic Church with its emphasis on hearing
God speaking through the bible, the centrality of
worship, growing in a living relationship with Jesus and
the importance of practical service within the community
in which the Church is set. Like our forerunners we
acknowledge the challenge of living in difficult times,
being culturally "up-to-speed" and relevant, yet able to
hear witness to God's unchanging love in
We are convinced that the Gospel of the Kingdom is still
great news for people looking for real purpose and
meaning in their lives and that it can have a marked
impact on our society in terms of social justice.
St Barnabas is a
family church - so children are especially
welcome and are part of a lively 'Junior church'
which meets as part of our 10:00am Family

For those who prefer something a
little more meditative, we have Holy Eucharist services
on Sunday at 8:30am and on Wednesday at 10:30am. The
first Sunday of every month at 6:00pm we have an
alternative, more informal,
worship service, often with prayer for healing.
If you want to get in
to discuss the church programme, it would be great to
hear from you! Please take some time to read one or two
published sermons and keep up to date with the
topics being preached on a Sunday. If you would like us
to pray with you or for you, use our
online prayer request - let us help you through
prayer and meditation. We look forward to seeing you in
the near future.
