Welcome to St Barnabas Church Centre Erdington

Steeped in history, tragedy and triumph, we are proud of our new Church Centre fit for the 21st Century. Featuring a striking steel roof and glass extension beautifully integrated with the remnants of the historic architecture.

Our Mission

“We follow Christ and strive to show by example the love of God.

We aim to be a welcoming, caring, worshiping community, reaching out to the needs of all the people of Erdington and beyond.

So, come, whoever you are, join us, to search, to listen, to grow, to laugh, to feel part of something good”

The History of St Barnabas

The Church was badly damaged by fire in 2007, but has now been restored and transformed into a hub for the local community.

The Church is open Monday to Friday in the daytime and all are always welcome to come and visit us. There are church services on Sunday mornings and Wednesday lunchtimes. Our aim is to create an inviting place on the High Street where local people can get together in pleasant surroundings.


The St Barnabas Team

Our great team is made up of employees and a much valued network of volunteers, all of whom work hard to ensure that the Church Centre is always a great place to visit. Our vicar, the Reverend Freda Evans joined St Barnabas on the 19th of June 2008.
