Our building

St. Barnabas is situated on approximately two acres in Montgomery, Ohio, a northeastern suburb of Cincinnati, with easy access to I-71 and I-275. Built in 1991, the building benefited from the "sweat equity" of members of the congregation, making this facility truly a labor of love.

Our History

St. Barnabas was established in Montgomery, OH in 1980, and remains the only Episcopal church in the immediate vicinity. For the first 10 years or so, the fledgling congregation held services at the local Sycamore High School. Parishioners moved furniture and carried equipment each Sunday to the school for the services. Today, we have a beautiful building with a generous sanctuary - and a welcoming, generous group of parishioners! Read on for more history.
