St Barnabas in Linslade is an active and friendly Anglican Church with a sizeable congregation covering a broad spectrum from those coming from a non-conformist background to members of our Walsingham Cell.
The main Sunday services are at 8am and 10am. Families are most welcome - at the 10am Eucharist there is a crèche for the youngest children, Sunday School for primary school children and the Barnacles club for older children. On the third Sunday of each month the 10am Eucharist is a less formal All Age Eucharist. Coffee and biscuits are available after the 10am service in the Hall. Please look at the Weekly Newsletter for details of other services.
The clergy team is led by Rev Bernard Minton who is assisted by Rev Wyn Jones and by no less than five readers.
The Linslade Community Hall is attached to St Barnabas. We have recently completed extensive renovations and the Hall and meeting rooms are available for hire. Please follow the link on the left for more details on the Hall, how to hire it and lists of the generous grants given to us to undertake the renovations.
Details of the many groups associated with St Barnabas can be found using the link on the left. The Newsletter Etc link contains links to the St Barnabas Weekly Newsletter, monthly magazine, PCC Minutes and the annual APCM report.
St Barnabas recently moved from the Diocese of Oxford to the Diocese of St Albans and became part of the Ouzel Valley Team Ministry in the Dunstable Deanery.
St Barnabas is situated within sight of Leighton Buzzard railway station. The arrival of the railway in the 1838 led to a housing boom around the station. The original 12th century parish church of St Mary’s was considered too inconvenient as it is over a mile away in Old Linslade. St Mary's is still used for occasional services and for weddings.
