The church does not have a graveyard.

Church History

It was founded in 1900 and closed in 1977.

In 1874, residents of the expanding iron-mining communities of Stank and Newton-in-Furness (within the parish of Dalton-in-Furness) had petitioned for the building of a school which could also be used for divine service.

In 1900 a new Mission Room was opened as a daughter church of Dalton-in-Furness and was named St Barnabas Church. It closed in 1977 and has since been converted into a private house, now virtually unrecognisable as a former place of worship.

Church Records

Whilst every effort has been made to record exact details of record office and library holdings you are recommended to check with them before visiting to ensure that they do hold the records and years you wish to examine. Similarly check with transcript publishers to ensure they cover the records and years you require before making a purchase.

No separate baptismal or marriage registers. However the building had a font and a number of baptisms did take place at Newton, being thus marked in the main St Mary's, Dalton christening registers.

Registers of services (occasionally also referring to baptisms) at Cumbria Record Office & Local Studies Library, Barrow.
