Welcome to St Barnabas
St Barnabas Anglican Church in Victoria, B.C., is a prayerful, thoughtful, loving and diverse community of people seeking to live out their Christian faith within the Anglo-Catholic inheritance of practise and worship. Whatever your age or condition in life, you will find peace, joy, and welcome here. If you are looking for a lively family ministry, a rich tradition of music, Bible study or prayer groups, if you are looking for ways to serve in the community, or wanting to learn more about the Christian faith; if you are desiring to grow closer to God and to find fellowship of many kinds, we invite you to take some time to browse this website.
The River: a Waldorf-inspired playgroup for children aged 0-5 and their caregivers. A snack is included. Entry is free (donations are welcome). Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:30 in the church hall. The River is on hiatus and will resume January 7th, 2015.
Sunday Sanctuary: The first Sunday of the month, from 4:00-4:45 pm. Our monthly family centered service with wonderful music, hands on activities and quiet time to take a breath before the new week starts.
The Friday Communion: This Friday morning Mass begins at 9:00 am and serves a large group of people from widely divergent backgrounds and histories. Food vouchers are distributed at the end of the service which are redeemable at a local grocery store. We've also recently partnered with the Emmaus Community for "Coffee and Conversation" (after Mass from about 9:45 to 10:45) where we hope those who attend this Mass will gather as a community-building place. The Emmaus Community is located accross the street from St. Barnabas Church at #2 - 1702 Belmont Avenue.
