More About Us


St Barnabas Church was built to show the love of God to all. It aims to serve the community of Joydens Wood, and Bexley Park. We pray for all those who live and work in this area, and our clergy team are available at times of need or distress.

We meet on Sundays worship together and to support each other as we learn more about what it means to live as Christians in the modern world. Through the week, the church building in Tile Kiln Lane is used by the community, and there are other opportunities to meet together, meeting in each other’s homes.

St Barnabas Church, Joydens Wood is part of the Bexley Team partnering with the parish churches of St James, North Cray, St John's, Bexley & St Mary's Bexley.
