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 10am
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
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.

Watch Your Mouth by Tony Evans
Series runs May 7-28, 2017
"Does it really matter what I say?"
Your greatest weapon—for good or evil—is in your mouth.
Watch Your Mouth is based on bestselling author Dr. Tony Evans book by the same name. This compelling resource will help you learn to tame your tongue. With real-life stories and life-changing insights shared through engaging teaching, you'll learn what the Bible teaches about talking and discover the power of the spoken word to bolster your faith when you're doubting, discern what should or shouldn't be said so that you honor God with your speech, and develop the ability to praise God and voice wisdom even in tough circumstances.

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.
Pat Wakeman, Children's Ministry Coordinator
Pat Wakeman brings a faithful and persevering kindness to the ministry for our youngest on Sunday mornings that involves child care, classes, and Adventureland (a fun, interactive worship experience for children ages 4-9 during our Sunday morning gatherings). Not only is Pat responsible for the coordination of these essential ministries, she also serves by recruiting for them and often subs in when needed. We are blessed by the many people who give their time and attention to our children every Sunday, from infant to high school. Theirs is a ministry to all of us.
Help for Haiti
Emma DuBois and Travis Carbone, two students from our Senior High Youth Group, have been selected for a special missions trip to Haiti this summer through Love in Motion, a ministry run by Monadnock Bible Conference. While there, they will be doing reconstruction from hurricane Matthew, distribution of medical supplies, clothes, water and food, and most importantly, spreading the love of Jesus Christ. Emma and Travis are raising funds for their trip through a GoFundMe page. Every single dime donated will be used for the cost of the trip ($2,000 per person). Any funds raised that exceed that will be used to buy extra shoes, clothing, and food for the children of Haiti.
Please prayerfully consider supporting these two as they step out of their comfort zones to show love to the people of Port-au-Prince. Read more and donate on their GoFundMe page here.
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.
