Hi! Welcome to Barney’s. 

As a small community, we are excited about what God is doing amongst us, and we’re passionate about discovering how we can join in with what God is already doing in the world we’re part of.

Our vision is to see authentic, mission-focussed communities of Jesus-followers established and being multiplied around the university, in the northern suburbs of Launceston and out in to the north and east of Tasmania

24-7 Prayer 


Last Easter The Imagine Network decked out the old chapel at Barney's with butchers paper, hunted down some comfy chairs and endeavoured to have someone praying every hour, around the clock for a week.  We are about to kick it off again. Get involved!


This year, from the 29th of March to the 5th of April we'll be opening up the old chapel at Barney's for 24/7 prayer in one hour slots. You can pray by yourself, with your bible study, or one or two mates. The choice is entirely yours!

Missional Communities

Missional communities are at the heart of the way we hope to do church at Barney's. Missional communities are groups of Christians setting out to share life together, to learn more about Jesus together, and to be good news in the real world... together. Each community forms around a particular vision for mission and that vision shapes and defines their life together. Our vision is for Barney's to become a network of missional communities, each seeking to be salt and light in their own way.

On resting...

I feel rested.  It’s a strange feeling - one which has not been as familiar as it might have been over the last few years.  But it’s a good feeling.  Coming out of the summer break, ready to jump with both feet into the year ahead, I’m encouraged and I’m refreshed… because I’ve rested.

We encourage our whole Barney’s community to carve out some space during January for rest, relaxation and restoration.  As I’ve pushed in to this over the summer, I’ve gathered together a few thoughts which have helped and shaped my resting…

Faith and Motorcycles...

In this article, Andy shares some thoughts on how having faith in Jesus is a bit like riding a motorbike...
