"Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect" 

- 1 Peter 3:15 (TNIV)


At Barney’s, we recognise that mastering the art of Christian persuasion takes more than simply knowing a bunch of interesting facts and cool one-liners. It involves a humble and gentle attitude with a desire to win the person and not just the argument (1 Peter 3:15). For this reason, we place a strong emphasis on being able to disagree well so that our conduct may be as equally, if not more, persuasive than our words.


This website is primarily for members of St Barnabas Anglican Church Sydney who wish to be better informed and equipped to answer the many challenging questions that arise when interacting with non-Christians on matters of faith, science, religion and philosophy. Whilst the purpose of this website is to act as an online resource for those involved in the Barneys Apologetic Discussion Group, we hope that in time it will become a useful resource for anyone who desires to deepen their Christian faith and improve their intellectual understanding of the bible and apologetics.
