St Barnabas Church

St Barnabas Church, Easterton

‘Although a small church, the congregation offers a warm welcome to all visitors.’

St Barnabas ChurchBuilt in 1875 and sympathetically extended in 1981 with a parish room, the Church St Barnabas in Easterton is situated at the end of the village, bounded by the main B3098 and the Kings Road with the main entrance through the impressive Lych-gate, up the path through the short avenue of lime trees to the church porch. There is also an entrance from the Kings road.

Inside the church there is a new nave altar as well as the chancel altar, and a simple organ, the Millennium wall hanging sewn by villagers, the brass plaque memorials to the fallen of two World Wars and other framed plaster artworks. The Church apart from weddings, baptisms and funerals is also available for meetings, exhibitions and small concerts seating up to 100. St Barnabas is one of the five churches in the Benefice of the Lavingtons, Chevrells and Easterton. The priest is the Rev Marion Harrison supported by retired priest the Rev Ann Cocking.

The details of services are listed in the front porch and in the Easterton Echoes. The regular Parish Communion service is held at 11am on the fourth Sunday of every month.  A benefice Communion Service is held on the first Sunday of the Month which rotates in order around the five churches.  On the second Sunday of the month, there is an ecumenical combined services with the United Reformed Church and St Mary’s, this rotates in turn around the three churches so is held in St Barnabas every third month.

The church is normally opened every day for all who would like to sit in a quiet place for prayer and reflection, but due to the Covid-19 crisis this has been temporarily closed for the period until further notice. For more information click on the website link below:
