This website has been set up by friends of St. Barnabas’ Church, Gillingham, who wish to oppose the threat of closure it is currently facing.
St. Barnabas’ Church has served local people since Victorian times and continues to be an important place for community events, regular worship, and religious ceremonies.
It has been suggested that there are too many churches in North Gillingham, and that the proposed closure of St. Barnabas is the first step in reducing the number of Anglican churches in the area. We do not want to see any churches close, and will campaign to keep St. Barnabas’ Church open.
If you wish to be part of this campaign, please follow the links below to sign our petition and find out more. We would also like to hear from anyone else keen to take part in this campaign, so please do get in-touch if you think you could do more to help.
