Our Story

In 2007, a group of people in Peachtree City founded All Saints Anglican Church. Rooted in Scripture and the Apostolic tradition and with a desire to see people grow in their relationship with the Lord, All Saints quickly grew! Hungry for a liturgical and biblical church led by the Holy Spirit, many people began to drive from the surrounding areas, including neighboring Coweta county.

In 2018, Fr. Michael Fry and the Vestry of All Saints began to sense that God was leading them to plant a new congregation in Coweta County. After much prayer, and with the generosity of many, All Saints issued a call to Fr. Joey Fitzgerald in the Fall of 2020 to begin the work of establishing this new Anglican church in Coweta County. With the Bishop’s approval, we officially became St. Barnabas in February of 2021.

From gatherings in the "Upper Room" at Deacon Jeff and Karol Lamb's house, to monthly services at a generous neighboring church, our community took shape. Out of an act of generosity, an individual donated a tract of land to All Saints Anglican Church, with the intentions that the proceeds of the sale would be used by All Saints to further their ministry. The leadership at All Saints voted to use those proceeds to help fund the Coweta Church plant. On January 16, 2022, services began at 390 Jackson St, Newnan.

By the end of 2023, St. Barnabas was ready to step out on our own. With a dedicated and growing body of parishoners, led in all things by scripture and the power of the Holy Spirit, January of 2024 saw us face a bright future as an independent church, together in faith.

Our Name

In the early church, there was a man named Barnabas. He was a missionary with St. Paul. His name means “son of encouragement.” The Bible first introduces us to Barnabas in Acts 4:32-37. There we are told that he sold a piece of land and laid it at the Apostles feet in order to help fund the mission of the early church! As we prayed about a church name, the story of Barnabas came to mind, and it seemed to be a perfect fit to honor the generosity of our beginnings!
