St Barnabas is a warm and friendly Anglican church serving the communities of Thwaites Brow, Long Lee, Parkwood and Hainworth in Keighley. At St Barnabas you will find a warm welcome at all of our services, some are traditional Book of Common Prayer, some are middle Anglican parish communion, and some are gently charismatic with modern worship songs (see church life section).
But in all of our styles of worship we seek to give glory to, and praise the living God as we seek to be followers of Jesus.
Public worship is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This page gives you a flavour of what would normally take place in the life of this church.
