Summary Description

The current building was constructed 1910-11 to designs by Professor Sir Charles Reilly, to replace a mission church of 20 years earlier, using a grant from ICBS. It was not consecrated until 1929 and only completed in 1934-7, when Reilly painted the chancel screen and rood, and added a vestry. It is an early example of the adaptation of Romanesque under modernist principles, as well as being well proportioned to fit the narrow site. St Barnabas' is a stern and bold design, although its main features, the concrete domes, are only visible from within or above. All of the windows are single-light and round-arched with small square panes framed with steel.
