St Barnabas is an inclusive church in the heart of Southfields
St Barnabas aims to be a place of welcome for people of every age and background, where a thoughtful and rooted faith can be found. In the Liberal catholic tradition of the Church of England, we offer a place of worship which is traditional and contemporary. A place where you can think, reflect and pray, and share the journey of faith with others.
We are easy to find. At 146 Lavenham Road SW18 5EP On the corner of Lavenham Rd and Merton Road.

Please bear with us in these difficult times. Information will appear under Latest news on this page, but more up-to-date information can be accessed via the Twitter link – including regular reflections by Ian, which can be found in the pinned tweet section on this page and on our Facebook page.
