COMMUNITY

COMMUNITY


We are an Anglican church in Kensington, with people who make up a cross-section of West London. Our community is a mix of young and old, singles, students, young families, children and youth.

Because our world can sometimes seem shallow and uncertain, we must go deeper… together. We're about building friendships, discovering God's unique plan for us and making a lasting impact on life in our city. Because with God - we can.

Clusters


Clusters


Why Cluster?

Clusters are our mid-week groups. We encourage everyone to join one because they are the place to make relationships, be discipled and reach out to others. Clusters have a mix of prayer, worship, studying the bible, socialising and food. Each one is slightly different.

To get more informtion about the particular cluster or to join the group.

3 is enough

Can’t make a Tuesday or Wednesday cluster? Why not join with a couple of friends from church and form a ‘three is enough’ (tie) group?
A tie group ideally meets weekly for 60 minutes sharing, praying for each other, discussing the bible and encouraging each other to be Christ-centred in all areas of life.

A QUIET CONTEMPLATIVE SPACE TO MEET WITH GOD

The contemplative prayer group meets monthly in the Church Room from 7:30pm to 9pm

This is a time to slow down and explore some very long established, contemplative spiritual practices which encourage a deeper experience of God. An example is Lectio Divina (divine reading) which is not a typical Bible study, primarily engaging the mind, but a devotional meditation on scripture, allowing the living Word of God to speak to our hearts. 

Light refreshments provided. All welcome!

Future dates: 20th February & 20th March.

Prayer


Prayer


KINGDOM COME PRAYER

Meetings take place on the first Tuesday of every month, between 8pm and 9.30pm: join us for prayer, worship and ministry.

 

FREEDOM PRAYER

Our desire is for everyone at St Barnabas to experience the personal and spiritual freedom that has been won for us through Christ.

Freedom Prayer appointments are open to anyone in our congregation and provide an opportunity for people to be prayed for in a longer prayer session.  During these times, a small team (generally two people) pray for God’s direct revelation for the person being prayed for. These prayer times are exciting, affirming and life-giving. Should you wish to book an appointment, please email pippa@stbk.org.uk.

Alpha


Alpha


What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Food

Whether it's a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It's no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food because it's a great way to build community and get to know each other.

 

Then a

Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Watch a Talk

 

Followed by

Discussion

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There's no obligation to say anything and there's nothing you can't say (seriously). It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
