If you just want to spend some quiet time with God, we welcome you. If you’ve been away from the Church and want to give it another try, we welcome you. If you want to be part of the activities of a busy church, we welcome you and will help you find ways to connect with others and to deepen your faith.
St. Barnabas welcomes all people – we are part of the welcoming churches of Cape Cod – so know no matter who you are, what color, nationality, gender, or if you are lesbian, gay or transgender – you are welcome! We care about each other and our community. You will find companions on your spiritual journey here – a place for your children to learn values and make friends and a community that reaches out in concern for others.
Located on the Village Green in the center of Falmouth, we worship at 8 and 10 on Sundays. The 8 a.m. service is quiet and follows the Rite I liturgy with words and prayers from the 16th century in the Book of Common Prayer. The 10 a.m. service is our family service – with Rite II or other newer rites in the Episcopal tradition. We have a full choir and children may attend Sunday school that begins at 9:45 during the school year. Every 10 a.m. service is followed by a joyous coffee hour or lemonade on the lawn in the summer and a chance to get to know each other. Eight o’clock has a wonderful coffee hour on the first Sunday of every month. Come – worship with us.
We hope to see you – we are welcoming many new people to our church each week and can’t wait to meet you. Children are always welcome at both services – we have coloring materials at the ready and love to have them with us. Their voices fill the sanctuary with the sound of chatter and laughter that we love to hear.
If you like, come join us on Wednesday mornings at 10 in the Chapel where we have a small but dedicated group of parishioners. This service is less formal and filled with friendly people, who really care about each other. Coffee is served after each service. If you are thinking of getting back to church this may be a gentle way in. Come and visit us in our beautiful chapel.
Note: Our rector, the Rev. Patricia Barrett, is on sabbatical until the end of 2013. We are being ably served now by the Rev Matthew Potts and the Rev. Stephen Smith. Please call the office for more information and speak to our administrator, Margaret Margolis.
