Welcome to St. Barnabas Episcopal Church located in Sykesville, MD!

We are a parish of the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Maryland and are part of the world-wide Anglican Communion.

Join us for worship this Sunday at 9 a.m.  We will welcome Rt. Rev. Robert W. Ihloff, Assisting Bishop, of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland.  He will receive new parishioners into the Fellowship of the Episcopal Church.  This service will be indoors.  Hand sanitizer will be provided.  Services will be livestreamed on St. Barnabas’ YouTube channel: (St Barnabas Episcopal Church – YouTube).

We have returned to worship indoors, with services at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. (with the exception of Sunday, June 27, 2021, at 9 a.m.).  The June 27 and the regular 10 a.m. service are live streamed on our YouTube channel.

We believe that 90% of our congregation has been fully vaccinated, making it safe to worship without masks, apart from singing.  However, if you have not yet been fully vaccinated, please wear a mask throughout the duration of the service for your own protection and the safety of others.  Fully vaccinated choir members may sing unmasked, but if a member has not been vaccinated, he/she needs to wear a mask to sing.

Respondents to our recent poll recommended that separate seating be provided for those parishioners who still wish to practice social distancing and wears masks during the service.  As such, two reserve rows at the rear of the church for these members, reducing the change they will be exposed to air expelled from the lungs of those seated in front of them.  Two air purifiers are also being used to purify and recirculate air in the church.
