St Barnabas Church was built in 1890 and for 123 years has served its parish in Gillingham. Over this time, many of those who have come through the door have found the atmosphere we offer so inviting they have continued coming for many years. Many say they could not think of going anywhere else such is the welcome and community spirit present in this church.

The church is a good example of spectacular Victorian Architecture and this combined with the recently restored Stained Glass Windows makes it a large and beautiful venue which is the perfect backdrop for Weddings, Baptisms and School Events.

A Tea and Coffee Afternoon held weekly on a Wednesday provides much needed outreach to the older people in our community and the numbers attending have gradually increased as this proves popular.

St Barnabas also benefits from a large hall which is available for hire for children's parties, or for regular group bookings at very reasonable rates. Please contact us for more details.
