Our vision of encouraging confident Christians, growing churches and transforming communities guides and supports our parishes, churches and three cathedrals.
We are here to help everyone share the Good News of Jesus Christ across our diverse region.

Barnabas: Encouraging Confidence is how we work together to create confident Christians, build growing churches and be part of transforming communities.

Barnabas offers every church resources and support at different levels and will help us to become more confident in our mission, leadership, future, and witness.
