All welcome at our times of prayer and worship

Worship in church, private prayer and online – for details please check the Church Services page.

If you are attending church, please follow the advice in this statement:

SAFETY…unless you are exempt, when entering the church you must wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth at all times.  We advise that if you are considered ‘medically vulnerable’ that you do not visit for private prayer or book to attend a service at this time.  It’s important to stay safe and we don’t want people to take unnecessary risks.  Thank you for your co-operation.

 

For children and families…we have a new Children and Families Missioner, Bethan.  To watch her welcome message click here!

Join us and become part of a friendly and welcoming church community. Our church is a place for spiritual reflection and meditation as well as being an inspirational space.

There’s been a building on this site for over 160 years and when the church was rebuilt ten years ago, what we wanted was a building which shouted out ‘We are here for everyone’.  And yes, we are here for everyone, young and old, of different cultures, backgrounds, ages, sexuality and gender.  We are an Inclusive Church and as a caring church community, we are very much here to meet the needs of the people of Erdington and beyond.

Our Vicar is Rev Emma Sykes. To watch her welcome message, click here.

Delighted with the can-do attitude of the St. Barnabas team. Nothing is too much trouble. A lovely venue with friendly, helpful staff.
