The social hub at St Barnabas

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!
