The Barnabas Group 

The Barnabas Group is the name we give to a small number of members of Magdalen Road Church and Cowley Church Community who meet about three times a year to provide direction for the promotion of world mission within our congregations.

Most members are mission partner champions. Our main task is to see that our mission partners are well supported. In addition we arrange two Sundays a year when our services focus on the world church and world mission.  We plan regular mission updates at Sunday services and seek to encourage prayer for our mission partners throughout the life of our church. We set an annual budget for those of our mission partners whom we support financially.

The Barnabas Group consists of Sarah Bhogal, Pat Brittenden (Elder for Missions), Ruth Currie, Jonathan and Joanie Everett, Emily Greig, Fraser Hutchinson, Catherine Weston (Deacon for Missions) and Richard Weston.

If you are interested in exploring serving God in cross-cultural ministry, please get in touch in the first instance with Pat or Catherine so that we can prayerfully work together with you in discerning God’s guidance.
