Our thanks go out to the Anglican Foundation for their generous support of our new roof project. Our hall, built in the 1920s, has enabled us to serve our community in a wide variety of ways for all these decades. From our daycare and food ministry gatherings, to community and private events, to providing meeting space for many non-profit service and addiction groups, the St. Barnabas Hall is a much loved fixture of the Brow of the Hill neighbourhood in New Westminster. Now the rain will be kept out and our hall can continue to be the hub that many enjoy.
Thank you again to the Anglican Foundation.

Here is a note from me, my prayers are for these next few days — and weeks! Easter is coming…. the end of the pandemic is coming. We have to hold on, just a little while longer!

Beloved Friends, Sacred Singing Circle is two years old! This is a significant milestone for us as a community and we want you to celebrate with us. We have invited Paul Vasile, from Music that Makes Community and long time friend of our singing circle to join us and to share some songs with us. We are eager to welcome him.This month’s Circle will give us space to reminisce about the past two years of singing, praying and breaking bread as well as to dream about the future of this community. The theme is looking forward, looking back. We will gather on Zoom at 2:00 pm this Sunday, January 31st. We invite you to bring a special birthday/celebratory treat for yourself or for those who want an extra taste of the usual Sacred Singing Circle, below you will find Emilie’s delicious bread recipe.
