Welcome to the website of the Parish Church of St Barnabas, Swanland - part of the Church of England.

Although there has been a CofE church in the village since 1899, the current multi-purpose building opened in 1992 to host over 200 regular adult members and over 100 Youth/Children in the service of God throughout the week.

The church is also in daily use as a resource to the church family and the wider Swanland community.

Our Vision

All Christian churches share a common mission and key points of belief. We are a Church of England (Anglican) church, but of course each local church has its own style and 'feel'. We try to make St Barnabas feel quite a relaxed place.

Our mission statement ('vision' and 'goal') describes what we believe is God's unique plan and purpose for this particular local church (click on the link).

Our Meetings

There are usually* two services each Sunday morning, one at 9.00 and the second at 10.30.  We also meet in smaller numbers at 6.30 on most Sunday evenings, and for prayers every morning from 8.30am.

Refreshments

Between our morning services we have refreshments, please do join us and enjoy a free cup of tea, fresh coffee - or whatever you prefer (we'll try and do our best!)

Church is for Everybody

Everyone is Welcome - and we run special activites to make all ages feel especially welcome.

Children

We have  a number of passionate and experienced people who lead our work with pre-school, primary and pre-teen children as they learn about God from an early age. There are a number of midweek activities from our 'Cygnets' toddler group to a 'home group' for 10-13s, as well as small groups for children most Sunday mornings.

Youth

We also have a number of midweek home groups and activities for young people who are at secondary school or college, led by our youthwork volunteer Jim and a dedicated team.
