Sunday 18th April 2021 – Generous: A Life Worth Giving

On Sunday we will begin our new series on Generosity.

This week it is – Loving Generously – Luke 7: 36-50

We will be meeting together IN PERSON for this service at 11am for a Communion Service in St Philip’s – please join us.  Our Prayer time before will be on Zoom still – at 10am.

The following weeks will be on the same topic

April 25th – Praying and Sharing – John 6: 1-13
May 2nd – The Best, Not the Scraps – Luke 16: 19-31 – GIFT DAY

For those attending our service on Sunday there will be a leaflet with analysis of our current situation.  There is an online version available too – it is called “All things come from you – and of your own do we give you.”

We would love to hear your testimonies about how God has provided for you in times of hardship so if you wish to share with the rest of the Parish either in these updates or at Church on Sunday please Contact us


Rev Sue Jennings

On Easter Sunday it was announced that Rev Sue Jennings is leaving us at the end of June.  Sue and her husband Ian have been accepted as CMS Mission Partners, more information to come on this exciting development.  Sue will leave a huge hole in the life of our Parish and our ministry in this city.  Her last Sunday will be 20th June 2021 – the day before COVID-19 restrictions are expected to be fully removed so watch this space for what we can do to mark the occasion.

St Barnabas Communion

We will begin the Communion Service at St Barnabas again this Wednesday 21st April at 10.30am.  We will attempt to also have the option to phone in too.  Sometimes this works brilliantly, sometimes not!  We will use an Easter Season Service you can find here.

Annual Parochial Church Meeting

Our APCM has come around quickly.  We will hold this during our Sunday service on 30th May 2021.  We will still not be able to sit and share as we usually do – so we will hold a slightly longer service incorporating the APCM and end with taking Communion Together.  For those unable to attend in person the option to attend via Zoom or by calling in will be available.
