Whether you are new to the Richmond or Chesterfield County area, new to the idea of attending a church, or shopping for a new church home, you will find a warm welcome at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church.
Yes, we are an Episcopal Church, but many of our members come from several other denominations, while others have been life-long Episcopalians. ALL all have found a home within our St. Barnabas family. We are a "family", concerned for the welfare of each member. Plan to visit us and try us out. You will be greeted at our doors, introduced to others, given a worship bulletin to guide you easily through our worship service, and invited to join us afterwards for coffee and fellowship to get to know us.
Jackie Degge is our Parish Administrator. Jackie, pictured with her grandson, David, is a longtime member of St. Barnabas. Jackie serves as Committee Chair for Parish Life and Special Events; Flower Guild; Worship Committee; plus any and everything that needs to be done.
We recognize her today and everyday.

Welcome from our Rector
St. Barnabas is a small church with a BIG heart. We have a strong sense of God’s presence in our worship and music. That same sense is found in our fellowship with one another and with all newcomers.
We are hospitable and diverse. We are also an active congregation – in our outreach to the community, the sick, the friendless and the needy.
Our 50th anniversary as an Episcopal parish came in 2012. We cordially welcome you to come be a part of our family for the next 50 years.
Father Ray Nelson
