We seek to grow as diverse disciples of Jesus Christ, and to serve Jesus by serving others in the world, guided by the values of Ancient Rites, Open Minds, and Affirming Hearts.
Welcome to St. Barnabas!!
St. Barnabas, located in Chelsea, Michigan, is an Episcopal Church and part of the Anglican Communion. This means we are both sacramental and mission oriented. We are a Total Ministry, or Ministry of All the Baptized, congregation, where all are encouraged to participate as each is called by God to do. This means some are called to help with worship, music, teaching, pastoral care, hospitality, greeting, ushering, intercession (prayers), altar guild duties or reading in addition to ordained ministry. And that‘s just inside the building!
You Are Welcome Here
We see faith as a journey, and we invite you to come with us and be a part of it. God invites everyone everywhere into his world and so do we. We believe that Jesus calls his church to be a compelling force for good in the world and that we have been created to be a part of something larger than ourselves. Come and journey with us!

Come walk our labyrinth and peace gardens anytime. We have an 11 circuit Chartres labyrinth available outside to walk anytime (weather permitting). A great tool for prayer, meditation and a walk with your soul. Our peace garden is adjacent to the labyrinth and has native Michigan plants. Want more information, set up a walk with your group or want to help in the gardens? Reach out to Cynthia: [email protected]
