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....

Coming up soon:

Sunday    1st November               3.00 p.m.    

Bereavement Service at St. Barnabas. 


A quiet and reflective service to remember those we have lost, either recently or in years gone by. 

Everyone is welcome, but with the current restrictions we need to know in advance how many are coming. 

Please either e-mail or leave a message on the answerphone 01202 247588 as we need to know your name, phone number, and the number of people who will be coming with you (including yourself).
