It's All About Him
We are a friendly local Anglican Church, seeking to show the love of God to the people of our city.
What We Strive to Do
As a church, our purpose is to serve Christ and his people and to make Him known to the glory of God. To accomplish this mission, we have a multi-faceted ministry.
"We exist to know and serve Christ and his people and to make Christ known to the glory of God"

founded in 1912
George Kazogolo, who has been the senior minister at St. Barnabas' Anglican Church since 1998, is married to Jenny and they have two adult children and a grandson. George's role is to lead a team of three paid workers as well as an army of volunteers who lead various ministries in the Church. George has witnessed Westmead become more diverse and he thinks the best thing about these changes has been seeing them reflected in the Church.
Children / Youth & Cross-Cultural Minister
Steve Chakarovski loves Jesus and wants everyone to know him. Steve is our children's and youth minister who co-ordinates and leads Sunday School, SUPA Club, Scripture and Kids Plus. Steve also is our cross-cultural minister, where he ministers to families of different ethnic backgrounds. Steve joined our church in March 2014 and is married to Ashleigh.
We are getting ready to sing Christmas Carols!
For Christians across the world, the Christmas period is a time to sing and celebrate.
A time of great joy and celebration!
For the week (10th to the 14th of December), we continue our practice of singing carols in our community. So every evening a group of singers will visit a number of the people we have contact with and sing carols. The mix of languages in our community means we have the joy of singing carols over the course of these visits in 5 different languages!
As we get to sing in peoples’ mother tongue, we see the Christmas message being sung, bringing joy to the hearts of many!
Our "young adults" Bible study group is for anyone from 18 to 30 years of age. If you live in the Westmead area, no matter what your circumstance are, we have a place for you! We know young adults are looking for solid relationships and a place where spiritual growth and discipleship are abundantly provided. This group could be just what you're looking for and where God is leading you. Please join us this Thursday at 6:30pm.
As a church, we desire that all youth in the Westmead area who come within our ministry, will find a safe place to belong and to learn about what it means to follow Jesus. We encourage our youth to be involved in the Christian community where they can spur each other on towards love and good deeds.
We employ a part-time women's worker to teach, train and care for the women of our church and in our community. Priority is given to equipping women by teaching God's Word, so they can know the depths of God's grace and his purpose for their lives. Women of our church meet together regularly, pray for each other and the less fortunate throughout the world, serve the church in various ways and reach out to those who don't know that God loves them.
We run several Christian learning programs throughout the week for kids in years K to 6. These essential programs are designed to help kids grow in knowledge of God and consist of a variety of learning activities, games, music and morning/afternoon tea. The programs aim to help kids meet new friends while also developing social skills.
Our Church offers an additional set of organised programs which caters to the community. Whether you are having difficulties speaking English or you are planning a christening, St. Barnabas', Westmead, will be able to assist you!
