The design is sympathetic to the site and its history, while offering an outstanding new building for the Church and the community... The new building will support the work and outreach of St Barnabas over the coming decades... [and] will make a significant contribution to local communities and will enhance the streetscape of Broadway and Mountain Streets.
— Ian Powell, Senior Minister at St Barnabas Church

fjmt won an invited competition to design the new St Barnabas Anglican Church. The existing building and adjacent community hall, located on Sydney’s busy Broadway, was destroyed by fire in May 2006. A Sydney institution for over 150 years, the new development will be the first church to be built in the City of Sydney in forty years and will house a flexible 600-seat worship space, a multi-purpose hall, administrative offices and meeting rooms, and underground parking for up to 80 cars.

fjmt’s role includes extensive consultation spanning parish, diocese, council and community stakeholders.
