Worship is at the heart of all we do @ St. Barnabas. We like to mix it up: we use both modern & traditional liturgies; we incorporate a variety of contemporary & classical musical styles & instruments; & we welcome people of all ages & backgrounds at all our services.
We gather to be both comforted & challenged; to pray & listen to God; & to feed the hungry & equip the faithful for service in the community.
Music is an important part of worship @ St. Barnabas. The choir sings regularly during the 10:30 am service, & prepares anthems for special seasons during the church year. The Hand Bell choir enriches our worship with special selections once per month, during the 10:30 am service, & also joins in for special services throughout the year.
Sunday Worship service
Since the beginning of COVID-19, St-Barnabas have held a 9:00 am service (in-person and on ZOOM), alternating between the original 8:00 am. sung Holy Communion, from the Book of Common Prayer/BCP (traditional-language service), and the 10:30 am. sung Holy Communion, from the Book of Alternative Services/BAS (modern-language service). We also regularly incorporate Bible readings done in French at this service. The Sunday School meets in their own classes, and joins the adults for Holy Communion. Again, all are welcome for refreshments & fellowship at coffee hour.
Sunday school classes: take place during the 9:00 am service. (Except in Summer)
Large print resources, & gluten-free communion wafers, are available on request.
St. Barnabas is wheelchair accessible.
