Prayer Group

Rose Orr runs a prayer group meeting once a month in her flat.

We would really love more people to join us.

The meetings take the form of looking at a saint of the day, possibly a tiny bible study, then praying for people and situations, followed by a cup of tea.

The meetings start at 14.30 and last about an hour and a half.

Please talk to Rose Orr if you are interested in joining.

Dates can be found on the Parish Events page.


For the Parish during our interregnum

During the interregnum, we are alternating the two prayers below in our weekly intercessions. Please take a moment to remember the Parish and those who worship at St. Barnabas.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, giver of every good gift: Be pleased to hear the prayers of your people, and send to us as the Vicar of this parish a Priest after your own heart who shall faithfully and wisely exercise the cure of souls, to the good of your Church and the glory of your name.


Look graciously at this time on the people of this parish, and give to us a faithful Priest who will serve you in all diligence and lowliness of heart, and, by your blessing, bring many souls to the joy of your eternal kingdom.

Remember Christian Soul


That you have this day and every day of your life

God to glorify,

Jesus to imitate,

The Angels and Saints to invoke,

A soul to save,

A body to mortify,

Sins to repent of,

Virtues to acquire,

Hell to avoid,

Heaven to gain,

Eternity to prepare for,

Time to profit by,

Neighbours to edify,

The world to despise,

Devils to combat,

Passions to subdue,

Death, perhaps, to suffer,

And judgment to undergo.
