Latest news about Ibba Girls School and Glassdoor Night Shelter

We have just received a thank you letter from the Ibba Girls School in the Southern Sudan for the £327 collected during Lent this year. Thanks to all who have generously helped to support that beacon of hope and education.

Last week we had a good review of our work with Glassdoor Night Shelter and we appreciated Ben’s time with us. We will start again in November and it seems likely that we will be welcoming women too this year and are considering helping with breakfast. Anyone interested in helping with what is the largest Night Shelter for the homeless in London do get in touch. you don’t have to be  a church member to get involved.

Hall Bookings

Our halls are open for hire.

We are delighted to be welcoming back regular group activities, both for children and for adults.

As of April 23, 2022, we will have limited availability for party hire.  For the time being, we are prioritizing users who live in the parish of St Barnabas or are church members, as we want to support our local community as we come out of Covid restrictions.  Click here for details.

We run the halls as part of our commitment to the community.  Although they raise revenue for us, they are not profit making, so we ask all hirers to respect them and look after them so that they can be enjoyed by local residents for many years to come.
