Message from the Churchwardens - 17 March 2020
As you will be aware in the light of the Government's advice concerning Coronavirus, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling for Church of England Churches to put public worship on hold and become a “different sort of Church” in the coming months to face the challenge of coronavirus.
This of course means that there will be no Church services at St Barnabas with immediate effect and until further notice.
The Church of England are going to be looking at providing a range of resources to enable people to continue to walk with God at this difficult time. This will include LiveLent daily reflections, prayer for the day, audio and text and Alexa and Google Home smart speaker apps. So please do refer to the website : https://www.churchofengland.org/
The Church of England has the following prayer on its website which you may find helpful.
Keep us, good Lord,
Under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
Be with those who care for the sick,
And lift all who are brought low,
That we may find comfort
Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
In Christ Jesus our Lord.
If you have any questions regarding worship at St Barnabas then please do email us at : firstname.lastname@example.org
If at all possible we will try to provide links to access other services or sermons around he Diocese, as may be appropriate.
Welcome to our website!
"We are a Church of England parish located in the northern part of Epsom that has, historically, been the less affluent part of the town. The community and our congregation are varied and diverse, reflecting different backgrounds and bringing a wealth of different experiences of life and living out the Christian faith. Above all, we want to make God’s love a living reality for all people. We are deeply committed to social justice and are a welcoming, inclusive church that makes space for everyone.
Our services are relaxed and friendly, open to all. On Sundays, we worship “in the round” in traditional and experimental ways, gathered around God’s table to celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Through it we are fed so that we can live out our daily lives helping build God’s kingdom, bringing his light, love, and peace to a troubled world that so desperately needs it. So, if you are a fellow traveller, seeker, committed Christian, or just curious; do join us on a Sunday morning and find out what we are all about. You’ll find a warm welcome, a supportive community of faith, and a small church with a big heart!"
