History

Originally there were eight churches in our area – you can see their pictures on the window of our café. The two most recent churches to come together in our new building were the Church of the Resurrection and St Barnabas church – hence the name on the front of our building. We also have a legal name – “The Parish of the Good Shepherd and St Barnabas” so we answer to that too!

St Barnabas’ Church (closed in 2014)
