Welcome to the St Barnabas' Church website!

St Barnabas' is a friendly Church of England parish church on Rushet Road (just off Cotmandene Crescent) in St Paul's Cray, Orpington, Kent BR5 2PU. Although the distinctive green roof is clearly visible from a distance, it becomes more difficult to find our church the closer you get and you may wish to consult the map.

Our aim is to keep connected to God through prayer, worship and teaching to enable us to be connected to our world, responding to the needs of our community and sharing God's love in a way that transforms lives.

We try to provide a warm welcome to all our visitors:  if you're local to us, or visiting the area, we would be pleased to see you at one of our services or social events. Wherever you're from, we hope you find something of interest on (or through) this site.
