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.
Women's World Day of Prayer - Friday 3rd
The theme this year is 'Am I Being Unfair to You?' and has been
prepared by the Christian women of the Philippines. There will be two events
locally, 10:30an at St Martin of Tours, Chelsfield and 7:30pm at The Temple URC
in St Mary Cray. The events are open to both men and women and all are welcome.
Our new Alpha Course is running on Wednesday evenings
8:00-9:45pm from 1st February - 29th March. These evenings
provide the opportunity to
share some desserts/cakes and explore the relevance and meaning of the
Christian faith. After watching a short video featuring Bear Grylls, Nicky
& Pippa Gumbel, Jackie Pullinger and others, who will be exploring what life
is all about, there is an opportunity to ask whatever questions come to
mind. You can see a trailer
for the Alpha Course using this link : Alpha.
If you would like to take part in this or future Alpha courses please email
or call the Parish Office on 01689 821353 and leave your contact details.
