First Snow

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.

St. Barnabas in 2013

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.

Whoever you are, wherever you find yourself on your journey of faith...
you are welcome at St. Barnabas. Our mission is to create deeper and fuller personal relationships with God and our neighbors by following the commandments of Jesus Christ in our daily lives, especially through spirit-inspired ministries in our communities.



We are a friendly Episcopal parish located in the Cincinnati, OH suburb of Montgomery. We invite you to come to one of our services and see what we are all about. Since the arrival of our new Priest in Charge, The Rev. Nancy Turner Jones, 18 months ago, we’ve added a youth group (and their annual mission trip to Mountain T.O.P., TN); a new children’s ministry, which includes the acclaimed Godly Play Montessori-style early education Sunday School; an adult education and formation series; and other programs designed to provide a spiritual, comfortable and welcoming home to all who yearn to have God in their lives. Please take a few minutes to look around our web site to learn more about St. Barnabas. We hope to see you soon!
