Parish Reorganisation

The official process has begun, to create a single parish from the existing parishes of Emmer Green St Barnabas and Caversham Park. There is a notice period, which closes on 15th July, during which representations for or against the scheme may be made.  The draft scheme (including details of how to make a representation) may be viewed on the Church of England website: https://www.churchofengland.org/consultation and a paper copy is available on the Parish Centre noticeboard.

Toddler Thursdays

We now have a Toddler group meeting in the Parish Centre from 8:45am (following the school drop-off) until 10:00am.  Toys, refreshments, all available, just come along – all toddlers must be accompanied by a parent/carer.

  • Busy Bees meets every Monday during Term Time, including Half Term Holidays and Bank Holidays.

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.
