The interior of St Barnabas’ Episcopal Church is currently being renovated, with the old flooring being removed and new flooring being laid, along with the creation of a new configuration around the altar. To mark the occasion we are having a special “Celebration Sunday” service on Sunday September 15 at 10 am.
St Barnabas has a wide and diverse range of ministries within the church and to the wider community; “Celebration Sunday” also acknowledges these ministries and the volunteers who generously give their time and talents in serving God in the church. Following the 10 am service there will be a picnic (weather permitting). All are welcome. For further information please contact the office at 2800 Duncan Road, Wilmington DE 19808, email or telephone (302) 994 6607.
Faith & Poetry
Our program year at St Barnabas begins on Wednesday, September 18, with supper and poetry. We share soup and conversation and then listen to a poem, which attendees reflect upon and discuss in a relaxed and informal setting. Each session is stand-alone, so if you miss one you can come to the next session. Copies of the poem and other materials will be provided for each session.
We meet in the lounge at St Barnabas’ Episcopal Church, beginning at 6:30 pm with a simple supper of soup and bread, then at 7 pm there is an introduction to the session and a reading of the poem. Each session ends at 8 pm.
The opening poem on September 18 is There Was a Child Went Forth, from Walt Whitman’s collection Leaves of Grass. Details of further poems in the series will be advised closer to the date. For further details and to confirm your attendance at one or more of the sessions, please contact the office at 2800 Duncan Road, Wilmington DE 19808, email or telephone (302) 994 6607.
