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 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. On the corner of Lavenham Rd and Merton Road.
We have a Sunday School, toys in church, a Youth Group, and provide a variety of opportunities to worship, learn together and provide a vital hub for the local community.
Join us for Parish Eucharist every Sunday.
Sermon for Creationtide 2019. I have an article out this week on the C19th French- although technically Basque- missionary priest, explorer and naturalist Pere Armand David. You might not have heard of him, but if you have marvelled at the antics of the Giant Panda or have a butterfly bush, a buddleia, in your garden…
I am currently researching this remarkable missionary priest who brought knowledge of the Giant Panda to western Europe. There will be more details published on twitter in due course.
On Saturday the 7th September from 10.30 am until 3pm the church and garden will be open for anyone who wishes to have a look around or just enjoy the quiet. There will be tea and coffee available. All in our local community will be welcome, particularly those who have not been in before.
There are some meadow brown butterflies around and there are bees and hover flies in abundance. The long grass is now teeming with grasshoppers and the native wild flowers such as lesser knapweed are getting established. More details can be found on the Twitter feed- with photos.
