Dear all, Even with the easing of restrictions from the NSW government which has taken effect, it is not possible for us to meet together as church. Bishop Mark recognises how hard this is, and urges us to keep trusting God our Saviour. Please view the video below for more details.
Please find attached a statement from Bishop Mark regarding the 150th anniversary of our diocese. Mark said “I trust this helps many people mark this significant anniversary in an appropriate way, as we both own the past and yet look to the future with prayer that God will transform us and use us for his glory.” from_the_bishop_20200507.pdf

Bishop Mark's Easter Message for us all- remember you can see all services on this website too!

Friday 27th March 2020
As you may be already aware, regular weekly services have been cancelled in St Barnabas until further notice, in fact no gathering of any kind can be held in the Parish. Funerals can only be conducted at the graveside with immediate family present. We understand these are distressing circumstances over which we have no control but be sure that we will continue to provide pastoral care to you all as best we can. As a means of continuing ministry within our Parish, Bishop Mark Calder will be presenting a Sunday Worship Service each week which can be viewed on this website under the Services page. Another great way to participate in worship is to watch Songs of Praise, 11:30 am on the ABC channel each Sunday.
“No virus can change the number of days that God has written in his book for us. No virus can make the word of God untrue. No virus can undo the work of Christ on the cross. No virus can change the fact that through Jesus we have a Father in heaven who cares for us. And no virus can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”. Kevin DeYoung
We will endeavor to keep you up-to-date with what is happening in our parish through this website and also on our Face Book page. Please make every effort to keep in touch with your church family during these stressful and isolating times.
Yours in Christ
Susan Haines Secretary St Barnabas Anglican Church
