Welcome to the home page for the Parishes of All Saints, Kenley, and St Barnabas, Purley. The overarching aim of both our parishes is to make Christ known to an ever deeper level both within our congregations and within our local communities.
One of our main joys is to be able to offer a wide range of different services within our two parishes, including the contemporary and the traditional, so as to cater for a wide selection of tastes.
Both of our growing, vibrant churches enjoy a deep Christian spiritual life in which our desire is to put Christ at the centre of our existence.
Our churches have been in close relationship for approximately 10 years. Our list of services can be seen on our services page.
If you are thinking of attending our services, please know that you are truly welcome. You need not be concerned about not knowing church traditions, nor need you be concerned about issues such as where to sit, or what to wear. Simply come as you are. For more information about what to expect when you attend please see our FAQ page.
New 4th Sunday Worship at All Saints Kenley
New for 2017, All Saints Kenley has launched a new 4th Sunday Parish Communion service at 9:30am. This replaces Choral Matins at 9:30am and Cafe Church (previously at 11am).
Instead, you are invited to worship at 9.30am at a welcoming, friendly and semi-informal Communion service where children are warmly welcomed too.
Sunday January 22nd 2017 will be the first of these new 4th Sunday services, so please remember that there will be no Cafe Church at 11am.
Keep chatting and stay connected.

Have you ever wanted to chew over the sermon with the preacher directly after the service, well now is your chance. Every 1st Sunday in the month, grab a coffee after the service in the Hall, and chat about the sermon. This is an informal and relaxed event. Simply chat with friends about anything that may have come to mind during the sermon. All are invited.
Every 3rd Wednesday in the month, 3:30pm to 5:30pm
We launched Messy Church in 2013 and are thrilled by its growth. Thank you to all the volunteers, and a heart felt welcome to the many new people who now attend Messy Church regulary. If you would like to attend, it would be lovely to see you. We enjoy Messy Church every 3rd Wednesday in the month at St Barnabas Church. For more information click on the logo.
Messy Church Organisers giving a Testimony in front of 900 people at the Pentecost Service in Southwark Cathedral
We were recently invited by Southwark Diocese to speak about our Messy Church to people from all over our diocese. It was a truly superb event and a wonderful opportunity to sing God's praises for all He has done for us via Messy Church.
Thank you to the Organisers, Volunteers and our Messy Church Family
