“Encouraging Life at the Crossroads”
Welcome! My name is Derek and I am the vicar of St. Barnabas Church. We are a Church of England Parish Church at the heart of Emmer Green, Reading, in the UK. As Christians we seek to live by these five words:
- Encouraging: Barnabas lived at the time of Jesus and was given his name by his friends, it means ‘encourager’. He is an example for us.
- Life: St. John’s Gospel speaks about ‘Eternal Life’ being found now through a relationship with God, (John 17:3). We seek Life.
- at the Crossroads: Our church is located by one, but a ‘crossroads’ can be a life changing moment. We are a church at the crossroads.
We welcome enquiries about Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals. You may like to view our diary for other events (click the icon below):
