Designed by AJ Lacey in the early years of the 20th Century. A brass plaque commemorates the high water mark of the great Norwich flood of 1912. The Chancel contains a Kempe window, and there is more Kempe glass in the east window of the north aisle. The church also contains post war glass, the work of the Essex-based artist Alfred Wilkinson, and Wilkinson windows. At the time of its construction, St Barnabas was one of several Heigham Anglican churches. But the medieval church of St Bartholomew was destroyed in the Blitz, and St Philip on Heigham Road was demolished in the 1960s. St Barnanbas church houses the Heigham war memorial.
