Ranmore: St Barnabas
St Barnabas' Church on Ranmore Common – postcode RH5 6SP – has been known as "The Church on the North Downs Way" for many years and more recently was referred to as "My other Cathedral in the Woods" by the former Bishop [Christopher] of Guildford.
The Rector and Churchwardens have carefully considered the possible impact of the new virus variant on this church’s congregation and decided that the church should remain closed during April. However, ‘Zoom’ services will be conducted on-line following the usual pattern of services.
You can now download the St Barnabas monthly Newsletter through the News + Notices page. This will give you and idea of life at St Barnabas and you can also down load the leaflets about the history of the church. If you are reading this on a tablet it works best in the landscape format and if you are using a phone there is a Menu line at the bottom which leads you into the rest of the site.</span>
The parish of Ranmore is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Guildford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
We have an associated website – https://ranmorewarmemorial.info (you can click on this) – which was inspired by the names of the men "who went forth from this parish at the call of duty and fell in the Great War" who are listed on the memorial plaque on the wall of the nave in the church. It also contains background information on the Denbies Estate and the Cubitt family.
