St Barnabas

Bournemouth, Dorset


St Barnabas

The church was built in 1968, and at the time won an architectural award for the design. The parish of Holdenhurst in which the church of St Barnabas is contains the Townsend Estate, which is recognised nationally as being one of the bottom 20% in terms of social deprivation in the UK. The church runs a not-for-profit pre-school from Monday to Friday and this serves the large residential area in which the church is situated.
