Our churches will be open in the run up to Christmas

Please click here to view the services

in our churches over Advent and Christmas.

We are able to have services through December.

So, Christmas might not be quite the same as usual, but it will be good to be able to meet again and worship together.

All our services will be conducted in line with the current government teir restrictions.


"We seek to worship and love God with our whole being, sharing His love with our neighbour"

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!
