Welcome to St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Borrego Springs. We are an inviting, engaging community of your friends and neighbors, full-time residents and seasonal visitors, who gather to worship weekly in a lively yet traditional way that honors our heritage, our contemporary life, and our hopes for the future.
The Episcopal Church arose from the traditions of the Church of England which was a key element of the colonial community prior to the formation of our United States. As part of the world-wide Anglican Communion, we are considered a "bridge church" because we have synthesized the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church with the theologies of the Reformation. We continue to grow in understanding the revelation of God through the Scriptures of both the Hebrew faith and the Christian Church, the tradition of our religious heritage, and our God-given ability to reason.
As faithful Christians, we strive to live by the message of Christ and to love one another as generously as Christ loved us. We welcome all people who are pursuing their own journey of faith and hope to be a part of each person's deeper understanding of the love of God.
Please join us in all the ways that we gather each week - in worship, in fellowship and in service. As you continue to explore the pages of our web site, we hope you will feel that you have discovered your spiritual home.
Borrego Springs is a small resort community surrounded by the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, which offers visitors an abundance of activities, recreation, seasonal events, and a pleasant climate most of the year which is ideal for our outdoor labyrinth, our gift to the community and beyond.
