The Hand bell choir enriches our worship with special selections once per month, during the 10:30 a.m. service, & also joins in for special services throughout the year.

Worship is at the heart of all we do @ St. Barnabas. We like to mix it up: we use both modern & traditional liturgies; we incorporate a variety of contemporary & classical musical styles; & we welcome people of all ages & backgrounds at all our services.
We gather to be both comforted & challenged; to pray & listen to God; & to feed the hungry& equip the faithful for service.
