During the current national lock down it is with regret that it has been decided not to hold services in our churches during March in order to keep everyone safe.

We are very much hoping that we will be able to have services on Good Friday and Easter Sunday – look out for details here later in March or in the April Magazine.


In the meantime, if anyone would like to go to St. Barnabas for private prayer please contact Roger Bourne (01202 515498) to arrange a mutually convenient time to open the church.

Welcome to the home of

St John the Evangelist and St Barnabas

Our two churches make up the Parish of Holdenhurst in Bournemouth, England.

Though linked for many years the two churches appear very different. Contrasting the historic church of St Johns in the small village of Holdenhurst, which was mentioned in the Doomsday book, with the modern building of St Barnabas which was built in the 1960's.

Although different on the outside, the welcome you'll receive inside is always warm and friendly!
