St Barnabas is in the Brow of the Hill neighbourhood in New Westminster. We are a pilgrim place. Wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome to come and explore with us.
St. Barnabas is an open community welcoming all – skeptics, seekers, believers. We are diverse and lively, committed to loving and transforming the world we live in.
Worship is at the heart of our creative and caring faith community. We stand with one another, declaring that all people are God’s beloved and the world is God’s creation. We reach out to our local neighbourhood with compassion, justice and love. Living in “simple abundance,” we strive to share our blessings and to invite people to participate in a place where all gifts are welcomed, encouraged and shared.
Sunday’s readings can be found here: The Revised Common Lectionary – the common lectionary readings used throughout the year by the Anglican Church.
Whether you are a life-long Anglican, new to the church, or just wondering what role faith might play in your life, please know that you are most welcome here.
