About Us

"Loving people: loving God: loving Life". That's our vision at St. Barnabas, Swanland. Thank you for your interest in us. We are a community of all ages committed to following Jesus Christ in his international rescue mission to save the lost and heal the broken. Our aim is to share Christ through friendship.

We are the Anglican (CofE) parish church for the village of Swanland, East Yorkshire, 7 miles west of the great city of Hull. We belong to the West Hull area of the Hull Deanery (local Anglican church group) as well as maintaining links with national movements such as New Wine and Spring Harvest.

There is a service every Sunday morning, at 10am until about 11.30am. Refreshments at the end, please do join us and enjoy a free cup of fresh coffee or tea, etc. We have a group for children aged 3-11 most Sundays and a mid-week youth group for those 11+, but everybody is welcome throughout all our services.

(Usually there is also a communion service at 2pm on Wednesday and until recently at 9 or 9.30am on some Sundays. These communion services are currently suspended)

We have a variety of small groups meeting in homes across the area through the week and some mid-week activities in church, though some of these are still getting back to 'normal' as we emerge from the Covid pandemic. Please contact the office or the Vicar for more details.
