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.

Messy Church - Saturday 21st January

Our next Messy Church session is on Saturday 21st January from 3:30pm, when we  will be exploring the theme of 'Listening to God' through our usual range of craft activities, a time of worship and a meal together. If you are one of our regular Messy Church families, or likely to attend for the first time, we look forward to being able to welcome you to our new year of bible-inspired activities.

Alpha comes to St Barnabas

We are very pleased to be able to invite you to join us on Wednesday evenings 8:00-9:45pm from 1st February - 29th March to explore the Christian faith. These Alpha Course evenings will provide the opportunity to share some desserts/cakes, watch a short video featuring Bear Grylls, Nicky & Pippa Gumbel, Jackie Pullinger and others who will be exploring what life is all about and then a time when you are free to ask whatever questions come to mind. There is no pressure to continue the course to the end, but why not come along to the first session to see what it is all about. You can see a trailer for the Alpha Course using this link : Alpha. If you would like to take part please email or call the Parish Office: or 01689 821353 and leave your contact details.
