Church of England Diocese of Southwark St. Barnabas, Eltham

St Barnabas Eltham

St Barnabas Church Eltham is located in the district known as Well Hall in London SE9. The church is a landmark building on the A205 South Circular Road on the way to and from Woolwich, close to the A2. 


Due to the improving infection rates locally and nationally we are able to re-start services in church from Easter Sunday at 1030am. We will also open the building for private prayer on Good Friday between noon and 3pm, but our return to corporate worship will fittingly be on Easter Day! Particularly appropriate perhaps because we are an Easter people and we were unable to celebrate in church in 2020. Please come and join us.

All our services will continue to be subject to strict infection control measures to keep you as safe and comfortable as we possibly can in this situation. Easter Sunday will offer the possibility of receiving Holy Communion (in one kind) but no-one is obliged to receive. 

The Sunday Sermon will continue to be published on Facebook under 'St Barnabas Church Eltham' but our services will be live from Easter.

The church is now on social media in two ways. We have a group on Facebook called 'St Barnabas Church Eltham'. Just search for that and it will take you to our page. You may also wish to follow the vicar on Twitter @VicarStBEltham. We also hold a weekly bible study on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm on Zoom. Details are available from the FB page.


At St Barnabas we take very seriously the whole issue of safeguarding. Our two Safeguarding Officers are Lynne and Maureen, who can be reached 24/7 via email ([email protected]) or by phone (0208 856 8294), or you can reach the diocesan safeguarding contacts (0207 939 9400).
