Noticeboard

The Monday Club

The Monday club meets at 2pm most weeks and provides an opportunity for senior citizens to share refreshments and entertainment.

Under 3's Group

The Under 3’s is a drop in group aimed at parents with small children. Coffee and biscuits are served in a welcoming and safe Christian environment. Singing is usually accompanied by Cyril Birkbeck on his trumpet!

Church of England School Places

Please note that all of the local Church of England schools require evidence of attendance at church on at least 2 weeks every month for a number of years before the application date. They also require other evidence of involvement, such as long term committed support for the life of the church and its mission.

There is a signing in sheet at the back of the church on Sundays and you will also find some notes about the local schools and procedures for application and admissions criteria in the same area.

The Church of England Primary schools closest to us are St Michaels, Bishop Gilpin and St Anne’s in Wandsworth.

Singing and Music at St Barnabas

If you have an interest in getting involved with this side of parish life please do get in contact with Michael Parfett, our organist and director of music. Lavenham singers take on some challenging pieces- last year they performed parts of Vivaldi’s Gloria during a Sunday morning service. We have a music group who play every 6 weeks or so and a spontaneous choir practices directly before the morning services on the occasions that they are available.

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.

NB: all hall names are merely working titles, and all prices are open to revision!
