St. Barnabas is an active, growing community that provides nurture, support, & guidance to enable all its members to deepen their faith and to carry out Christ's work in the world.
Usually once a month, there is a Rector’s Forum offered for small group conversation about a range of topics. We have gravitated toward reading and discussing early Christian literature that did not make it into the Bible. This has actually been a helpful angle to allow people to understand and engage better with the Bible. Then we also delve into topics in the Bible itself. In turn, participants have expressed interest in related topics such as the great ecumenical councils of the church (think Nicaea in 325 A.D.), a variety of church figures over the centuries (for example Benedict of Nursia and Julian of Norwich; meaningful figures in Christian monasticism) as well as occasional modern topics around Christian ethics and similar themes.
