We welcome the Rev Dr Leonard Onugha who has temporarily joined the Ministry Team. He led the 15th November Morning Service. You might like to hear a little of his story and meet his wife, Joanna. 

@ Saint Barnabas

We have Sunday worship online with singing at 9.30 am every week. We’re also busy working on risk assessments, determining how we can reopen the church for groups and services as safely as possible. We’ll update this page and the calendar as the situation unfolds. For the latest update, see the letter from the PCC on 6th August.

In church

The church is open for private prayer from 9am to 10.30am every Thursday. You’ll need to wear a face covering and follow the stewards’ guidance to keep risks from Covid-19 as low as possible. For full details, see private prayer.

Remembrance Service 2020 (Sunday 8th November, 10:50 am)

The Lockdown means we were not be able to have a public service. Therefore a Remembrance Sunday Service was live streamed from St Barnabas Church.
This was instead of the live-streamed 9.30 am Service.
To view this Service please click on Remembrance Service 2020

For services from the Oxford diocese, see https://www.oxford.anglican.org/coronavirus-covid-19/livestream/.

If you have friends who don’t have internet access, there are also services from Oxford and prayers available by telephone. For details, see a note from Hayley.

Almighty God,
who gave such grace to your apostle Saint Andrew
that he readily obeyed the call of your Son Jesus Christ
and brought his brother with him:
call us by your holy word,
and give us grace to follow you without delay
and to tell the good news of your kingdom;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
Were finalizing plans for our carol service and wondered if anyone would like to join our virtual choir or read a lesson. Please do get in touch with Felicity, Joy, or via a direct message, if youre interested.

Our service of carols and lessons will be a virtual service this year, to allow everyone to sing heartily (which would be impossible in church). Well be broadcasting it on Sunday 20th December at 4.30pm to get you ready for Christmas week.

Heavenly Father,
whose blessed Son was revealed
to destroy the works of the devil
and to make us the children of God and heirs of eternal life:
grant that we, having this hope,
may purify ourselves even as he is pure;
that when he shall appear in power and great glory
we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom;
where he is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

Who was Barnabas?

Barnabas lived at the same time as Jesus and during the life of the early Christian Church he became instrumental in the spreading of the Christian gospel throughout the Mediterranean.  His name means ‘encourager’. Encouragement forms an integral part of our church community at the crossroads in Emmer Green.

Like Barnabas we want to encourage and support you. Also like Barnabas we believe we have a message we want to share with you, the good news of the gospel which opens up a whole new way of life.
