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!


Come and visit us and share in our community....

Our Community Choir ‘Sing Together’ will be performing a concert of music for all tastes to raise funds to help the work of Christian Aid in some of the most challenging areas of the world which need our help more than ever. 


They will be joined by a ukulele band, and a representative from Christian Aid will also be with us to tell us something about their vital work.  No charge for the concert, but you are welcome to make a donation.

Please do come and join us, and you will be very welcome to stay for tea and cake at the end of the concert.
