Beautiful old church full of island history and a very popular with the local community for weddings throughout many decades we were told. Set in scenic setting which became part of a great afternoon drive .The interior with its stained glass windows and wonderful woodwork was well worth the visit.

A visit to this church is included in the Pine trees half day tour, it is a beautiful church with a very interesting history. The church is open during the day so you can go in at any time to have a look by yourself

The stained glass rose and other windows are amazing. So to is the construction of the building itself. Take time to read about the purpose of the mission and its links with NZ and the South Pacific.

The history of this chapel is unique. The building design is magnificent. The acoustics is worth the trip to Norfolk Island. The lead light windows is a sight to behold. It is serene and peaceful.

St Barnabas Church is a fitting memory for the missionaries on Norfolk Island. The windows are glorious. The locals maintain it through selling small mementos for tourists.

The Interior is magnificent with all its woodwork and stained glass windows. Mother of pearl décor on the pews and marble flooring. The ceiling is built entirely of timber and shaped like an old sailing ship. Leave a donation for it's upkeep and buy a pamphlet on the building for memories.

We visited St Barnabas on our half-day tour of the island and were delighted. It is a beautiful church with amazing architecture - the roof, the stained glass windows, the wooden pews with pearl in-lays. Definitely worth a visit!

We visited as part of an island tour. This is a wonderful little church with a history of which I was unaware. Worth a visit.
