We are a friendly and welcoming church where we seek to know God and make him known.

We believe although God is a mystery he has revealed himself to the world through the person of Jesus Christ. We connect with him through his creation, through the unchanging word of the Bible, and by the presence of his Holy Spirit.

Our desire is to enable our church to reflect the life and teaching of Jesus in the world around us.  We do this through our worship and ministries as we cooperate with Christians of all denominations to share the love of God. All people are welcome regardless of their age, gender, race or culture.

We acknowledge that, like all people, we need God's love, grace and mercy and we believe Jesus Christ is the hope for the world.  As we experience this challenging time of the COVID19 Pandemic, we aim to be a people of hope, when times are tough, comforting those in need and who are ill, serving our neighbourhood, praying for breakthrough and rejoicing in the many blessing we have received.

If you share these aims, why not look further on our website, tuning in to our Online Services, and finding out more?

Back to Church surveys


Following almost 4 months of lockdown due to Covid-19 we began to make preparations to re-open church and get back together. We surveyed both the Breakfast@9 congregation and those who attend services in the main church. The results of the surveys can be found by clicking on the buttons below.


Canford Churches; namely The Lantern, St Barnabas  & Canford Parish Church, take our  responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and work in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
