Welcome to this website of St Barnabas Church Swanmore. St Barnabas is a friendly, active and lively family church, We warmly welcome you to come along and find out more. We offer a range of different services and worship styles and you’ll find information about these on our Services page. We do offer variety to cater for different tastes and expressions of Christian spirituality but – at heart – we are a church that puts the Eucharist or Holy Communion in a central place, taking seriously Jesus Christ’s call to break bread and drink wine together. When we do this we remember – with thankfulness – Jesus’ death and rising again.
But also every time we meet for worship and to share in the Eucharist together we celebrate and remember that ALL are welcome, that none is better or more deserving than another. What good news that is! Gender, age, sexuality, culture, ethnicity, status and so on – none of these is a barrier to belonging to God’s church. We aim to be welcoming to and inclusive of all people here at St Barnabas and we hope in the warmth of our human welcome you will see something of God’s love for you.
An invitation to everyone to pray at some point during that hour wherever you are.
