Barker Hall

The Church which meets at Barker Hall is one of a group of evangelical, Bible based churches, established and growing in many parts of the world, all holding the same beliefs and sharing a common purpose and common practices.

The Church of God in Middlesbrough has been in existence for over 100 years, over 70 of which based at Barker Hall, and has been active in the area ever since.

Within this website you will be able to find out about us – who we are, what we believe and what we do. If you have any questions about what you find here or anything else relating to God, his Church or what he wants for each one of us, then please get in touch.

Whether you are just visiting Middlesbrough on holiday or live nearby, you will be made very welcome. If you are looking for one of our Churches in another part of the UK or somewhere in the world, then please visit our central church website to look for a Church of God nearest to you.

Daily Reading Plan

Saturday 18 September 2021

Then their father Israel said to them, “If it must be, then do this: put some of the best products of the land in your bags and take them down to the man as a gift.”

Genesis 43:11

Despite suffering from a severe famine, Jacob was still determined to give the very best from his meagre resources. Although Joseph had everything he required, this present still touched his heart and brought him pleasure.
Our God has a superabundance of everything and yet he will graciously accept whatever we bring him, however small and insignificant, because our gifts remind him of his son. As we enter his presence tomorrow morning, let us – like Jacob – give of our very best. He deserves nothing less!
