Places to Serve

nick-karvounis-156112At St Barnabas, serving is one of our 'Markers of membership' so we encourage all our members to commit to serving in a ministry of St Barnabas. There is a great variety of ministries here so the hope is that all people find an area to serve in which they feel fulfilled, valued and most of all have fun!

Besom in Barnet
The Besom provides a bridge between those who want to give time, money things or skills and those in need.

Just one of the ways you can give, is to come out on our van trips which are on alternate Saturday mornings, delivering donated household items to people in need. If you’d like to volunteer on the Besom van, or make a difference in another way, we’d love to hear from you.

Building Maintenance
We always have room for volunteers who are able to help with grounds and buildings maintenance!

Before and after big events we also often need help with setup and tear-down of equipment and furnishings.

If you would like to assist our team, contact Dave through theoffice@stbarnabas.co.uk or 0208 343 5770



 
Healing on the Streets 
Every Saturday, whatever the weather, our Healing On The Streets teams take to North Finchley High Road to offer prayer to whoever wants it.
The teams meet at 11am at Costa Coffee shop on Finchley High Road to pray, before going to the area known as Tally Ho where from 12noon to 2pm they hand out leaflets and invite passers-by to come and receive prayer ministry. It’s one of many ways we try to fulfil the Lord’s commission to ‘Go’, and so far it has yielded a great deal of fruit in the form of physical healings and entirely unchurched people coming to know and follow Jesus.

If you would like to get involved in HOTS, contact Dave and Bridget through theoffice@stbarnabas.co.uk, or if you prefer, just turn up one Saturday!

Hospitality Team
One of the best ways to get to know people at St Bs is to join a Sunday Hospitality Team.

These are the teams of people who work with the Service Host Teams to help people feel at home when they come to a Sunday service. Responsibilities include welcoming people at the door, serving refreshments at the coffee bar, helping with things like passing the ‘offering’ baskets round and being available to chat to newcomers about how to get more involved in the life of the church family.

We ask our Hospitality Team members to serve once a month at the same Sunday service.

For more information email hospitality@stbarnabas.co.uk



 
Kids & Youth Team
Over the last few years we’ve seen a vibrant growth in kids and youth work. From little ones to teenagers, there's a place for everyone to serve and have fun.  

For kids teams email: Grace McPhilemy
For youth teams email: Peter Landry



 
Missional Communities 
There are plenty of opportunities to serve and get involved through our Missional Communities. In particular, we are often looking for cooks for our Sunday Community Lunches, run by the Homeless Outreach.
Find out more here.



 
Prayer Ministry Team
These are the teams of people whom we equip and train to pray with individuals during our Sunday services. The training is ‘on the job’, with less experienced team members partnering with more experienced ones. We also host an annual New Wine Prayer Ministry Training Day which all Sunday Ministry Team must attend at least once.

We ask our Sunday Prayer Ministry Team members to serve once a month at the same Sunday service.

For more information email The Prayer Ministry team.

World Mission Support
World Mission Support is a group of St Bs volunteers that provides support for our overseas members from a basis of love for God and His people. Drawing from years of experience in sending people out, we offer great guidance and support, and promote networking amongst Christians working in similar areas of mission. If you are considering mission, and are a member of St Barnabas, please contact World Mission Support: we would love to hear from you.

We are always keen to welcome new members at World Mission Support – there’s plenty of ways to support and get involved in mission work – without even stepping on a plane!! If this interests you, do get in touch with a member of World Mission Support, or Caroline Burns who co-ordinates World Mission Support.

Here are some useful links for those considering or preparing for mission.



 
Worship & Technical Team
We're always looking to recruit competent musicians (i.e. singers and instrumentalists) and technical team who are passionate about Jesus, to help us faciliate and instigate worship at Sunday services and mid-week events.

If you're interested getting involved, please email Andy Yeates.
