Sing in the New Year!

St Barnabas will celebrate the last Sunday of the calendar year on December 31 with the annual Hymn Sing. Musicians from the congregation will be playing their instruments for a festive and fun service. If you play an instrument and would like to join in, please contact Kathy West and she will see that you get the music to practice.

The service will begin at 10:00 a.m.

Worship in the Christmas Season

The celebration of Christmas will begin with worship at 8:00 p.m. on December 24, 2017. A Service of Lessons and Carols will be offered. This service is a beautiful way to welcome the Christ Child's birth, and to give thanks to God for this greatest gift to us.

On Christmas Day, a service of Holy Eucharist will be held at 10:00 a.m., and also on December 31 at 10:00 a.m.

The twelve-day Christmas Season is a wonderfully festive time of year, and a perfect time to cultivate our gratitude to God. A blessed season to all!

Your Last Wishes Are Important

No one wants to think about funerals, especially one’s own. But it is much easier to give it some thought while you can express your wishes about it, rather than waiting until your family has to figure it out on their own. To help with this necessary activity, St Barnabas Church has designed a form to guide your thinking and planning.

Another purpose of this form is to assist the church in carrying out your wishes, and to contact those you want notified, if necessary. The information is confidential and will be kept at St. Barnabas in a private file. You may place other relevant important documents and information that might be of assistance to the ministers in this file as well, such as a copy of an Advance Directive. You, your legal personal representative, or a person you designate at the end of this form, may have your documents removed or destroyed upon request. Revisions should be made whenever changes occur in the information you have provided.

Funeral/Memorial Services at St. Barnabas emphasize enduring memories that bring inspiration and comfort to surviving family and friends. We intend to use the information provided to help us create a service, which reflects your values and priorities. We also encourage you to talk about this information with family and friends.

You can access the form HERE (PDF). Please contact any member of the Ministry Team if you would prefer a pre-printed form.
