Should you wish to use the outdoor spaces please contact us. St Barnabas is situated in a residential area and naturally we expect anyone using out site to be considerate to our neighbours.


In special circumstances the church itself may be available for private use – please contact the Parish Office to enquire

Please note:

    • Live bands, catering and audio/visual set up can be easily accommodated but need to be organised by you
    • All rooms have level access with disabled, ladies’ and men’s toilets situated in the foyer.
  • Baby changing facilities are provided in the disabled toilet.
  • Large round or long folding tables and stacking chairs are available.
  • Bookings can be made for day times Monday to Saturday and evenings Monday to Friday. Bookings cannot be made for Sundays as all rooms are in use by the church.

They will return promptly at the end of the booking to receive the keys and to check that everything is in order.
