A Word From Geoff – February 2019

Dear Friends When we say ‘I believe in God’ do we really grasp what we are saying. What God do you believe in? One Christian professor I read about had a student who said to him one day ‘I don’t believe in God’. The professor responded by saying ‘Tell me which God you don’t believe […]

A Word From Geoff – January 2019

Dear Friends Another year, another resolution? Let me give you a thought and an aspiration for you to consider in 2019. Could you? Could we here at St. Barnabas commit to becoming ‘Popular in Heaven and famous in Hell’? Let me explain. R.T. Kendall who I think is now in his early 80’s was the […]

The Forge (St Barnabas’s Mens Group) held their monthly gathering but this time instead of sitting down to a nice cooked meal they were treated to a great team building exercise in making their own meals. #MakingManCurry was an evening where all who attended were split into different teams and were given the tools and […]

A Word From Geoff – November 2018

Dear Friends I am writing this the morning after a very successful ‘Light Party’, where over 100 children and adults, many of them not members of St. Barnabas, joined us for an alternative to Halloween.
