The congregation of St Barnabas was founded on St Barnabas' Day (11th June) 1955, when the new Church/Hall was opened on the semi-circular site set aside for the Church's use on the developing Weeke Estate.
It was always intended that a proper Church would eventually be built but for the next twelve years the congregation thrived in what is now the main part of the present Church Hall.
Services were held with the congregation facing the altar, which was behind a large roller blind, opened for services but normally kept closed to allow the hall to be used for many other activities. The roller blind is still there but unused. A piano provided the music and it was placed on the stage which in those days was at the other end of the Hall.
In 1956 the present Vicarage was built on the southern side of the site, leaving the large open space between the two buildings for a future Church.
Originally the area came within the Parish of Weeke, with its parish church of St. Matthew's next to Weeke pond, and daughter church of St. Paul's near the railway station: St. Barnabas became another daughter congregation.
In 1989 the Parish of Weeke was divided and the separate Parish of St. Barnabas was created.
