The Benefice of Linslade which includes St. Barnabas Church in Linslade and St. Mary's Old Linslade, is part of the Ouzel Valley Team ministry in the Diocese of St Albans, which includes All Saints Leighton Buzzard, St Leonard's Heath and Reach and the surrounding villages of Hockliffe, Eggington and Billington. Our main service is our Parish Eucharist on a Sunday at 10 am at St Barnabas, with Sunday School and creche. On the third Sunday of the month we have a rather less formal All-Age Eucharist. Our website has more details of our weekly services.
St, Mary's is the mediaeval mother Church of Linslade, surrounded now by fields. It is used only occasionally for Services, but remains much-loved.
We have regular music concerts in both churches, details of which are also shown on our website under 'What's On'
The Parish Hall has recently undergone a complete renovation. The restored hall has improved facilities, a new roof , and an undercover link to St Barnabas Church. The Hall is widely used by the local community, and has a new kitchen, and several small rooms for conferences and committees.
The organ restoration is now complete and we are working on other improvements to the church.
