Online church services and private prayer

The Church is now open for private prayer every Tuesday and Friday from 10.00am – 12.00pm.  Everyone is welcome! Of course the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority so we need everyone to follow the health & safety guidelines on display as you enter.  This includes using hand sanitizers, appropriate social distancing, clearly marked entrance and exit routes and asking staff and volunteers if you have any questions.

Please note: in the unfortunate event that you feel unwell and think you may have Coronovirus symptoms, we ask that you don’t come to the church but stay at home and seek medical advice. 

Thank you for your co-operation.

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.

SAFEGUARDING: For information regarding the safeguarding of children and adults in the church, please view our statement here:  SAFEGUARDING.



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