Help and Support

At St Barnabas we strongly believe in providing help and support for both our church members and the community around our church. We all face problems in life ranging from illness and bereavement to loneliness and depression, help with problems, or perhaps coping with a new addition to the family - sometimes we just simply need someone to listen to us.

St Barnabas we have a team of volunteers who can assist with most situations and where we can't we will be able to put you in touch with professional organisations that can provide assistance when you need it.

Should you need our assistance please contact the Parish Office on 01252 873839 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We can help you in the following areas: -


If you are finding it hard to cope with the loss, or imminent loss of a loved one, or simply do not know how to go about arranging things then we have trained bereavement visitors to help you through this traumatic period of life.


Are you or someone close to you suffering with serious or long term illness? Need some help, or someone to talk to? Don't do everything alone when help can be close at hand.

Christian Listeners

Sometimes if you have worries and problems you just need someone who will not just talk with you, but more importantly just listen to you without judgement, or forcing their opinions on you and all in strict confidence. This can often clarify a situation or feelings in a helpful way so that you can find your own course of action.

New Mums

Having a baby is a joyous time but can put mothers and families under extra strain with everything that has to be done and of course those sleep-disturbed nights. Let us help you even if only in a small way.


Prayer is a great answer to many of life's problems. Having people pray for, or with you is a powerful force. If you need prayer for situations in your, or your family and friends' lives, or just to give thanks and praise, we can help.
