Church of England Diocese of Guildford St. Barnabas, Ranmore

Ranmore: St Barnabas

St Barnabas' Church 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.

St Barnabas church is now open again for regular services but under special arrangements to keep the congregation safe during these difficult times. You can find out more in our 'SOCIAL DISTANCING FOR SERVICES' page.

You can download two monthly Newsletters 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.

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 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. This can be accessed from the OUR WEBSITE link below.
