St Barnabas Church, Joydens Wood


We are working together to ensure that during the current coronavirus outbreak we take all possible measures to protect our church congregations and the communities we serve.


There is one service each Sunday at 10.45am, and services are set to resume from Sunday 5th July, see our BT News page for the latest information.  All other services and group activities are currently suspended until further notice.

This is an opportunity for the whole church family, of all ages, to gather together for worship. (see the Young People page for more information about children's activities.) The service usually lasts about an hour and a quarter, and there is an opportunity afterwards to chat over a cup of coffee.

Normally the service is Holy Communion, the central worship service of the Christian Church. Baptised Christians from all traditions are welcome to receive the bread and wine of communion.  Those who prefer may come to receive a prayer for God’s blessing on them.  Most months there is a service of baptism, or other special services, when our children stay to enjoy the whole service with the adults.

Members of our Prayer Ministry Team are available during our Sunday service to pray with you. Every few months we have a Service for Healing and Wholeness.

Most Sundays, alongside the service, there is King's Kids, our group for children.

On other weeks the children are welcome to remain in the service, where simple activities will be provided for them. A creche room is available for those with young children.

Each month there is a special afternoon service at 4pm called Sunday @ 4.  This service includes activities, a time of worship with stories, and songs, followed by a tea of sandwiches and cake.

There are Parade Services for local uniformed organisations at Harvest, Remembrance, Pre-Christmas, Christingle and Palm Sunday.
