Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church has been patiently enduring the road construction at the corner of New Garden and Jefferson Roads for a very long time. With the widening and straightening, hopefully it will soon be easier to traverse New Garden Road. St. Barnabas is tucked away from the road on a wooded lot off of Jefferson Road, beside Bryan Boulevard.
The first service of the congregation that eventually evolved into St. Barnabas was held in Guilford Elementary School in 1967. Ninety-one people attended. In 1968, the fifteen acres on Jefferson Road were purchased and became the home to St. Barnabas Episcopal. The church, a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion and a mission of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, makes every effort to be inclusive and non-discriminatory. See our year of Sacred Sunday religious posts here. Hey Louis LaVache, this road is looking pretty bridge-y!
