A Warm Welcome

NEWS: Our Assistant Curate Siobhan is leaving and to officially announce her departure, here’s a message from the Archdeacon of Birmingham.

 ” I am very pleased to announce that following a prayerful process of discernment, the Revd Siobhan Bridge has been appointed as the next Vicar of St Paul’s Hamstead, subject to completion of the legal formalities. I am sure that you will join me in congratulating Siobhan and in praying for her as she completes her valued ministry in Erdington and moves to take up this new appointment. We will now be making arrangements for her licensing service and the relevant dates will be communicated in due course”



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.

We hold two church services every week, one on a Sunday at 10.30am and one every Wednesday at 10.30am.

If you come along to our Sunday morning Service, you will be welcomed at the door and, for those who would like to, we enjoy tea and coffee in our café afterwards.

Whenever you visit, we hope you will get a genuine sense that you matter to us, whoever you are.

The church activities we run provide other ways to get involved and of course, weddings, baptisms and funerals are important life events that take place at St. Barnabas throughout the year.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

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