At Barney’s we want to encourage rhythms of rest and abiding as well as all the fruitful ministry that we’re involved in throughout the year. We hope that by lightening the load over the summer period, we are able to be refreshed by Christ and renewed ahead of another year as God’s Missionary People, Seeing Lives Transformed.  Our January gatherings will all be from 11am, and you are invited to BYO picnic or BBQ lunch. This is a great opportunity to gather simply as family, and to invite others to experience our community in a very informal setting. Please see below details of these gatherings from Christmas until the end of January. Click on a location to see a map. If you have any queries, please email
