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.

Daily Reading Plan

Saturday 5 March 2022

To separate the holy from the common.

Ezekiel 42:20

The wilderness tabernacle had a white linen screen all around. Solomon’s temple had a perimeter wall, as did this one in Ezekiel’s vision of the future temple. It highlights a simple yet important principle for us as believers in the Lord – the importance of maintaining a separation between the holy, sacred things of the Lord and the ‘common’ things of this world. The Lord Jesus said of his disciples that they were not of the world (Jn.15:19). We live in the world, we testify to the world, we are lights to the world – but we need to ensure the world does not contaminate that which is holy, sacred in us and in our worship and service.
Tomorrow is a day for the Lord!
