Welcome to the St. Barnabas website. In Penny Lane, this church must have just about the most famous address in Liverpool!  When you have explored the site, why not pay us a visit? You will find that 'church' is more than a building: it is a company of men and women, boys and girls, together seeking to follow the Way of Christ.  We invite you to travel with us, and if there is anything we can do to meet you where you are, please get in touch.

May God  bless you,
Godfrey Butland
