St Barnabas Church


Come to the Church in the wildwood.
Come to the Church in the dale
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown Church in the vale.
William S. Pitts

In the heart of beautiful Yarramalong Valley on the NSW Central Coast stands heritage St Barnabas Church, the oldest church building in Wyong Shire.

Located on the outskirts of Yarramalong village just over Wyong River, St Barnabas was built by voluntary labour and opened on Friday, 11th December, 1885 by the then Anglican Bishop of Newcastle.

People of the district enjoyed services at St Barnabas for 92 years before the congregation moved to Wyong in 1977. Recognising its historical importance, Wyong
Shire Council acquired the site in 1978 and in 1982 the
Heritage Council of N.S.W. placed a permanent
conservation order on the building.

In recent years, public demand has seen services resume at St Barnabas, which is now an ecumenical church. This means that people of various religious persuasions worship here at different services conducted by visiting ministers.


Services are currently conducted on the following days:

  • Catholic Service:
    1st Sunday each month, 11.15am
  • Christian Worship:
    2nd Sunday each month, 10am
  • Ecumenical Service:
    3rd Sunday each month. 11am

Special services are held on Easter Sunday and ChristmasEve for the benefit of all denominations.

  Because of its old world charm and the natural beauty of its surroundings, St Barnabas is a popular location for events such as weddings and christenings and a point of interest for bus tours, which also enjoy a short stroll down the meandering bush path to its historic cemetery.
