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

Wednesday 23 June 2021

‘I have the right to do anything,’ you say – but not everything is beneficial. ‘I have the right to do anything’- but I will not be mastered by anything.’

1 Corinthians 6:12

There are many activities and behaviours that are clearly prohibited as being spiritually unhelpful for disciples of the Lord Jesus. There are some things that may not be specifically ‘prohibited’ but may nevertheless not be helpful for us in our pursuit of serving the Lord. They may not be wrong in themselves, but if they get in the way of our service for the Lord, if they distract us from our focus on him, then we need to give them up!
