Welcome to the website of St Barnabas Church, Pitshanger Lane, Ealing.
St Barnabas is a parish church of the Church of England, with its roots in the liberal catholic tradition. We hope you find the information here useful. We would be delighted to hear from you or to welcome you to one of our services.
St Barnabas exists to worship God and serve the community around Pitshanger Lane. The principal service is the Sunday Eucharist, each week at 10.30am. The congregation is made up of people from a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
St Barnabas seeks to be friendly and welcoming. Everyone, wherever they are on their journey of faith, is welcome to join us for worship. Those who worship with us over a period of time are encouraged to offer their time and talents to God as they choose. In this way the ministry of the church is built up and shared.
Activities include Sunday School, Young Church, Choir, Eucharistic Servers, Pop In, Cinema Club and social events such as the Pancake Party on Shrove Tuesday and Bangers and Sparklers in November. Two big social events appeal to the whole community: the winter Frost Fair and the Summer Fete.

(With breath-taking music from Bach and Handel)
Join us for one of the most moving acts of worship in the Christian calendar. We gather in complete darkness to kindle the new fire. Then an ancient Easter hymn is chanted as the church is steadily filled by a golden wave of candlelight. Powerful readings from scripture and majestic sacred music guide our journey from darkness to light. At the high point of worship, the church is flooded with light, flowers and the sound of handheld bells as we proclaim that “Christ is Risen. He is risen indeed!”
