BeFree Community Church: Barrington
Welcome to BeFree Barrington!
We are a faith community of ordinary people, experiencing God’s extraordinary, transforming grace in Jesus Christ. Together we are being revived by faith, renewed by hope, and restored by love as we seek to live out the core teaching of Jesus to love God, love others, and live to help people encounter His good news.
We gather on Sundays at 9:30am (for summer)
118 Church Street, Barrington, NH
Join us Sunday morning where you will encounter a genuine Welcome, uplifting Worship, and insights from God's Word that are understandable and applicable to your life. We have an up-tempo, down-to-earth worship format. Come celebrate with us!
Comfortable and encouraging care for infants to age 4 is provided
A fun interactive worship experience is offered for kids ages 4-9
***Sunday school and Connections classes have concluded for the summer and will resume in September.***
Before our Sunday worship gathering, students and adults are invited to attend Sunday school and Connections classes. All classes gather at 9am. Student classes are led by various members of the BeFree Barrington community. Connections is a time for adults of all ages to study God's Word together in a small group setting that allows for prayer and connecting with others in their walk of faith in Christ.

We strive to nurture even our youngest attendees by demonstrating God's love through our Children's Ministries. Each Sunday, a mother or father can hand off a toddler or child with confidence to the care of faithful others. Not only is this a ministry to them, their children get to experience an environment of welcome, personal worth, and focused care from the broader church family.

Senior High Youth
The Senior High Youth Group provides opportunities and an environment for students in grades 8-12 to be exposed to the gospel of Jesus and His love, and to grow in their relationship with Him through friendship, fun, events, and sharing God’s word while being guided by faithful leaders. Youth Group meets most Sunday evenings during the school year, with larger events once a month.
Keep up with us in our Facebook Group or on Snapchat (befreeyouth).
