Being a student is an exciting time of exploration: new ideas, new freedoms, new friends, perhaps even a new city. Whether you’re looking to deepen you faith through rich Bible teaching and fellowship, or exploring Jesus’ claims for the first time, there is something for you at Barneys.
Church on Sunday
Barneys church services are located close to Sydney University, UTS, Notre Dame, and other tertiary institutions. If you’re studying and looking for a church then come by and see if Barneys is for you.
Most of our students and young workers go to the Sunday night church service at 6:30pm. Many of our international students choose to come to the Sunday morning church service at 10am or to Barneys Overseas Chinese Church at 4:30pm.
Our young adults meet together in small groups throughout the week. Often they’ll share a meal together, meeting either at someone’s house or at the church.
Growth groups are one of the main way we express our identity as a family of missionary servants and disciples. Sometimes the groups are made up of people at the same stage in life, but we also have groups which are cross-cultural and cross-generational.
Residential College Bible Studies
If you’re living in accommodation in or around Sydney Uni, Notre Dame or UTS we can help connect you with Christian groups that meet together where you live.
We have active groups at all the Sydney University colleges, plus many of the other student residences around the university.
International Christian Fellowship (ICF)
Barneys partners with student leaders to enable a ministry to South East Asian students. ICF meets on Friday nights at Barneys for worship and Bible Study.
Many of our Chinese international students are involved in English and/or Mandarin Bible Study groups. These groups meet at Barneys and on campus at UTS and the University of Sydney.
