St Barnabas, Bromborough
St Barnabas, Bromborough
St Barnabas, in the centre of Bromborough village, is the Church of England parish church for Bromborough. The first church on the site of today's church was built 928AD, adjacent to a monastery founded 912AD, probably by Aethelflaeda, the Lady of the Mercians and daughter of Alfred the Great.
This Anglo-Saxon church was demolished in 1828, being replaced on the same site by another church which was itself replaced by the present church in 1864. A carved Anglo-Saxon preaching cross, discovered in the foundations of the first church, now stands by the south porch of the present church.
