Welcome - Holy Eucharist Services, Sunday 10:00 a.m.
We are the Episcopal branch of the body of Christ, and a member of the world wide Anglican Communion.  We are an inclusive fellowship with open doors for all to come to, and know, Jesus.  The symbols of our patron saint, St. David, are the daffodil, dove, and leek.  So, if you are happy, peaceful, or just a little pungent, we welcome you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

St. David's is a remarkable small country parish with a long history within the community of Barneveld, NY, located in the Town of Trenton, NY.  Our parish is geographically broad with young and elderly families alike.  We welcome all.  We are a people and life affirming church.  Children may attend our service, or attend our Sunday School,  provided during the service.  We are also proud of our Pre-K School, which is unique for a church of our size.  You can learn more by going to the Pre-K navigation button.

There is no need to wear a tie, unless you really want too.  Unlike some restaurants, we will not cut off your tie and pin it to the wall.

Parish LIfe

The rich traditions of the Episcopal Church provides many ways in which individuals can participate in the life of our parish. We welcome the opportunity to include people where they have an active interest.  Our parish community includes Eucharistic Ministers, readers for scripture, prayer, acolytes, Vestry, altar guild, Sunday School, stewardship, hosting social functions, and fundraisers.  Some functions require training before being placed on a schedule, but information is always available through our priest or other members of the congregation.

Coffee Hour - After every Sunday service, we join one another in our Parish Hall for treats and conversation.  Please join us.  You'll have an opportunity to meet members of our parish and learn more about St. David's.

Caring for others

Caring for others is important to St. David's as we live out our Christian lives, living into the risen Christ; not by perfection, but faith and faithfulness .  We support various concerns and fundraisers as need arises in our community and the wider world.  An important local organization that we support with giving is Foothills Rural Community Ministry of Holland Patent, NY., along with Sara's Pet Pantry.  Both ministries work to meet the needs of people and pets with food pantries and other concerns.  You can help support these worthy services by contacting, donating, or serving at

If you are interested in preschool at St. David's, please contact St. David's at 315-896-6707.  Our staff will discuss enrollment dates, class times, tuition, and any questions you may have about the student's days.  Classes tend to fill up quickly. The three year old children are given preference when returning to the four year old class.  Also, for parents that volunteer as a class aide, reductions in tuition are offered, so be sure to discuss with us how to participate at The Little Acorn School.

AGES AND Learning

St. David's preschool ages are from ages 3 and 4 years old.  The staff is vetted through the safe church training program of the Diocese of Central New York of the Episcopal Church.  Our teacher , Mrs. Nash is a long time resident and has been the teacher for many years. The preschool program is not a religious program of the Episcopal Church.  All children are welcomed regardless of religious affiliation.  Our grades are full and fill up quickly.  The children are fully engaged with activities for learning, socialization, and fun in a safe and personable environment. 

As examples of what children are learning at The Little Acorn School, the four year old class is learning to write the letters of the alphabet and their names.  In the three year old class, they are learning to count to 10; while the four year old class are counting to 30.  All ages have continued to learn their shapes and colors. 

Fun activities are frequently planned to suite the season including a Halloween Party, a visit from Santa Clause, and Valentine's Day.  During Winter, children have been treated to a sled day on church property.

Fundraiser - The Congregation of St. David’s Episcopal Church Presents:


On Sunday, March 24, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the TRENTON TOWN MUNICIPAL CENTER, Barneveld, NY, a benefit concert for Tanya Hart was held to raise money for her medical expenses. Admission was free and a free-will donation was collected. All donations were/are raised to defray Tanya’s expenses for threatment of Chiari Malformation and Hydrocephalus, which includes her eighth brain surgery with specialists in Colorado.

To date, the benefit has been an excellent success. Donations are still arriving. Nearly $2,000 has been raised, and we are still counting. If anyone would like to donate to this worthwhile cause, please send your donations, and checks payable, to St. David’s Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 344, Barneveld, NY 13304, marked Tayna Hart.

Many thanks to all of the volunteers that made this event happen who came from our community and the parish of St. Davids: the musicians, cooks, bakers, volunteers and organizers. St. David’s especially offers special thanks to the musicians volunteering their time and talent. Performance group’s included The Peters Duo and The Hawthorne & Stayton Duo. The music was excellent and included selections of classical, jazz, blues, and ragtime. Attendees also learned about the background and history of the music and its composers.

St. David’s also thanks the Town of Trenton Municipal Center for opening up their doors and space in order to hold this event. Opportunities such as this helps to build our community spirit and the well being of others.

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY we thank the generous, loving, giving friends, families and neighbors of Tonya Hart and her family who turned out to offer so much. We know the Hart Family along with all the parishioners of St. David’s pray for God’s grace, love, mercy and blessing to each and all who have given and supported this worthy cause.
