St.Barnabas Church Derby logo


At St Barnabas we recognise that the New Testament church appointed groups of elders to lead churches (Acts 14.23, 20.17). So as well as a Parochial Church Council (PCC) we have Barney's Leadership Team (BLT), an informal group of people who lead different areas of church life. As vicar Derek Honour leads this team.

Derek has previously served as a vicar in churches in Hayes Middlesex, Derby and Guildford. He is passionate about St Barnabas continuing to reveal God's love through serving our local community, especially to those from disadvantaged backgrounds that people of all ages may become true disciples filled with the Holy Spirit and grow into greater and greater Christian maturity.

Another important part of our leadership philosophy is to develop new leaders and we will continue to do this through regular use of the Church Pastoral Aid Society (C.P.A.S.) course 'Growing Leaders'.

Here are some of St Barnabas' key leaders:

Bill Day

Ordained Local Minister

Lisa Lawrence


Jen Allen

Children's and Youth Leader

Louise Latham
