St Barnabas History
St. Barnabas is an Anglican Church, part of the
Church of England and we are in the Deanery of Chadkirk and the
St. Barnabas' has been
part of the community of Lower Bredbury since 1943.
It started life as the daughter church of St.
Mark's, Bredbury, in what is now Bredbury Hall Country Club. In
1953 the church moved to its present building. From then over the
years it has grown in numbers, so that in 1983 the church became
an independent Parish Church in its own right.
On 19th May 1989 our extension was opened. This
was built to give us extra room for meetings and a library and
lounge area. Later on 6th June 1999 we held the opening for our
newly re-furbished kitchen and the extra facilities installed for
those with a disability - toilets and a loop-system.
Sometimes people say that St.
Barnabas' is not a "proper church" because it doesn't have a tower
or pews or saints in stained glass windows. The church however is
not the building. The people who meet in the building to worship
God and grow together in their love and trust of Jesus are the
church. Young or old, single or married, employed or unemployed -
these people all make up our church. The thing they have in common
is that they all have found that getting to know Jesus is the best
thing they have ever done
