We're open and safe to visit!
Welcome to everyone! The church is open for private prayer and Holy Communion, our Harbour Cafe is open for tasty food and drinks and our Lighthouse room is available to hire for meetings and training!
Dealing with the pandemic restrictions has been a challenge for everyone. Since re-opening in July we’ve worked hard to ensure all visitors, staff and volunteers feel safe at the church and centre. We ask all visitors follow our health and safety guidelines because it’s important that we all work together to keep each other safe. If you feel unwell and think you may have Coronovirus symptoms, please help to keep everyone safe by staying at home and seeking medical advice. Thank you for your co-operation.
Prayer and worship times are listed on the Church Services page.
Our Harbour Cafe is open Tuesday – Saturday 10.00am – 2.30pm. More details on the cafe page.
Our new vicar, Rev. Emma Sykes started with us in May. You can view her introductory message on YouTube here
A bit of background….
St. Barnabas Church Centre literally is a building that ‘rose from the ashes’. Why? Well, more information about our fantastic transformation can be found on this website, but to summarise the tale, a bad fire destroyed the heart of the original church in 2007 and its future was uncertain.
Thankfully, our destiny was shaped by a combination of finance and investment coupled with human drive, determination and the will of local people to rebuild and create the Centre we have today.
The joy is that we now offer multi-purpose facilities with the church of St. Barnabas living on as a place of solace, worship and hope, plus the added facilities of a delightful café and high-quality meeting spaces for hire including a fantastic conference room. It really is a place for people to use and enjoy.
Please do get in touch if you can’t find the information you are looking for on our website or if you would like to talk to us further about our facilities, the work we do or how you or your business or organisation could link with us.

St. Barnabas Church, which lies north of Birmingham, has long been a landmark of Erdington's busy High Street and a cornerstone of the local community.
We are an inclusive, Christian church welcoming a wonderful congregation, newcomers and people in the community who simply want a quiet place to reflect.
We have flexible rooms available, at competitive rates, to suit all kinds of events from 1 – 1 meetings, training sessions, conferences, exhibitions and more.
Come and enjoy the relaxed and informal atmosphere in what we think is one of the most inspiring and dramatic settings in the High Street!
