Sundays in December & January
In January, Sundays look a little different at Barney’s. This is because we believe God calls us to live a life with good rhythms of abiding and fruitfulness. Abiding means spending time with God, resting in Him and listening to Him, so that we can be sent, with roots that go down deep, into the fruitfulness of the work he is calling us to. We see this modelled in the life of Jesus, who withdrew to be with the Father, as well as ministering to the crowds. Jesus taught that it is only when we abide that we can then be fruitful (John 15). January is a good opportunity for abiding, so things slow down considerably at Barney’s, giving all those in various leadership roles the opportunity to abide more and prepare for the year ahead. During January we will meet on Sundays in various outdoor locations from 11am for and informal time of connecting and to share lunch. These are also great opportunities to invite friends who are not Christians to come along and get to know our community. Here are all the gatherings for Christmas and January, please click on the venues to see maps and directions from Barney's.
