Community Life

John Stott

“…a rich Christian community of worship and fellowship, a context congenial to thinking and writing.”

(Former resident John Stott describing the College of St Barnabas in his book The Radical Disciple published in 2010)

The College of St Barnabas is a residential community of retired Christians with an Anglican foundation, set in the beautiful Surrey countryside. There are good train links to central London from neighbouring Dormans railway station and we are less than an hour’s drive to the South Coast of England.

Single people and married couples are welcome. The College extends an ecumenical welcome to retired clergy and lay people from all member denominations of Churches Together in England. Day and overnight guests are catered for as are occasional Quiet Days and Retreats for individuals and groups.

Residents are encouraged to lead active, independent lives. There is a Care Wing, to which both internal and direct admission is possible and respite care is available. Our ‘Cloister’ flats have separate sitting rooms, bedrooms, and en suite facilities. There are two Chapels and the Eucharist is celebrated daily. We have three Libraries and a Common Room. Meals are served in our Refectory or taken privately. For further details or to visit:
