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.
Sunday Sanctuary: The first Sunday of the month, from 4:00-5:00 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.
Healing Service with Eucharist: Every 1st Wednesday of the month, 7 p.m. An opportunity for either anointing or laying on of hands within the setting of the Mass. To be healed is to be restored wherever we experience brokenness in our lives.
Companions of the Melanesian Brotherhood: Local Companions meet at St Barnabas for a corporate mass and breakfast meeting every few months. Anyone who would like to learn about the work of the Brotherhood is welcome to attend.
