As many of you know, the pandemic has prevented us from admitting children to Holy Communion for some time. We would now like to consult with you about when it would be best to prepare and admit children age 7 and above to Communion. Please complete this very simple, 3-question survey to help give us a steer.
The Exploring Faith Course offers a gentle exploration of the inclusive, sacramental, and positive approach to Christianity we aim to foster at St Barnabas. It's particularly created for those who are exploring for the first time or after a significant break from church life. The course will take place on Zoom on Tuesday evenings at 8pm and starts 5 October. Click here to book on the next course.

Prayers for the Appointment of the next Bishop of Willesden.
September: Appointment panel shortlist candidates
Look with your mercy and favour upon your faithful people here in the Willesden Area.
Bless and guide those responsible for the appointment of our new Bishop,
Raise up someone of deep faith,
soaked in the Scriptures,
with a love for your people,
and a passion to reach those who don't know you.
We ask this in the knowledge that you have oversight of us all,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
