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.

Date for your diary : Collation of our new Vicar, Justin Dodd : 4th September at 8pm. All welcome!
Our new Vicar is Rev’d Justin Dodd, currently Associate Vicar of All Saints Ealing Common,where he has been since Sept 2009. He was raised and educated in the vibrant city of Johannesburg, South Africa. It was here, inspired by the towering figures of Desmond Tutu, Trevor Huddleston and his childhood parish priest that he undertook training for the Anglican priesthood. Justin had an early lesson in humility when, in a chance meeting, Nelson Mandela described him as “Quite a tall man who seems nice enough.”
Justin has a keen interest in contemporary Christian spirituality and biblical scholarship, mission in a secular society and the beauty of sacramental worship. During his time at All Saints he has broadened the patterns of worship, introducing the occasional Taizé and Jazz Vespers; the congregation has grown spiritually and numerically. Before entering full time ministry, Justin worked in advertising as a copywriter and creative director for more than 10 years.
Justin is in his early to mid-thirties and married to Jill. They have a young son, Gabriel, who is eight months old. A further member of the family is “ Dizzy”, a Golden Retriever, and Justin can often be seen cycling the streets of Ealing with her in tow.
