Hi! Welcome to Barney’s. We are an Anglican church in the northern suburbs of Launceston, Tasmania. As a small community, we are excited about what God has done through us over the past few years, and even more excited about what he will do in the years ahead! Please have a browse around this website, where you can access lots of information about Barney's.
Our vision is to be God's Missionary People - Seeing Lives Transformed. We are passionate about blessing and serving people who don't know Jesus, and expect to see lives transformed as they (and we) encounter Him more and more.
Our mission is to grow Jesus-Centred communities of disciples who make disciples who make disciples... We believe we are called to live in communities as whole-hearted followers of Christ who can share Jesus with others.
Summer at barney’s
Christmas and January look a little different at Barney’s. We believe that God calls us to live in rhythms of abiding and fruitfulness. We need times to abide in Christ, to be restored and recharged for the fruitfulness he calls us to. Each of us works out these rhythms in our own lives, but we want to make space for us as a whole community to rest and abide as well. Therefore, over Christmas and January, instead of meeting at Barney’s on a Sunday morning, we meet in a number of outdoor locations for a more informal and social gathering.

Stories of Transformation
We've put together a short video (7 minutes) highlighting some of the stories of transformation from within our Barney's community, together with some of our hopes for the future.
If you're a friend of Barney's from further afield, please also consider partnering with us as we head into 2018.
We also have a 20 minute extended version of our Stories of Transformation video. Why not make a cup of tea, sit back, and hear even more of what God has been up to over the last eight years?
