St. Barnabas' Episcopal Church is a welcoming, energized, loving, multi-cultural parish serving North St. Louis County and many surrounding areas. Worship style is traditional but the congregation is informal. Come join us in worshipping our Lord and Savior.
St. Barnabas' Episcopal Church, a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri, began as a mission church in 1957 and was admitted as a new parish into the Diocese in 1972 by the 132nd Convention. Ground was broken in 1959 to erect the church building and a new parish hall was built in 1992.
The St. Barnabas community has approximately 120 members of all ages who consistently demonstrate a strong sense of responsibility to their church, to their families, and to each other. We are blessed by a group of parishioners who provide important leadership as we continue the mission of the Church - that is, preaching and hearing the Good News of Christ; celebrating the Eucharist, Holy Baptism and the other sacraments of the Church; providing educational opportunities to learn about God; and, caring for one another in the fellowship of a Christian community and for those outside the community. Many parishioners enjoy each other's company both within and outside the church setting and are very supportive of one another in time of need.
The Rt. Rev. George Wayne Smith is the Bishop of the Diocese of Missouri. The Rev. Renee Fenner, our Rector for over nine years, has accepted a call to another parish. She will be greatly missed as we search for her successor. We have been very fortunate in the stability of our clergy leadership, having had only four rectors in our 47 years as a parish. But change and the renewal it can bring is a good thing, too, and we are looking forward now to new challenges and new growth in the years ahead.
You are cordially invited to participate in worship and share in the parish life of St. Barnabas' Episcopal Church. We hope you will find here an opportunity to grow in the knowledge and love of God, to worship Him joyfully, to serve him as your Lord, and to form new friendships.
Come Join with Us in Worship and Fellowship!
