We Are....

A Torquay church learning together what it means to follow Jesus in today’s world.

With a fantastic team dedicated to the nurture of all our young people, with rigorous DRB checks & quality safeguarding practices. 

If you are on holiday, we hope Barton and the wider English Riviera contribute to a truly enjoyable time for you.

Messy Church, always the first Saturday of every month, 4-6pm including a family meal (except August and January).

When you visit for a Sunday Service, be sure to pick up a Welcome Pack.  This will give you a little more information (inc. a free book).


At Barton we recognise the value and priority of Christian education and formation, through mature use of the Scriptures and a helpful grasp of theological truth.

We believe that being a disciple is a constant journey of discovering the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to that end we offer a variety of ways in which the young or older Christian can grow and thrive.

“It is Christ we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.”  Colossians 1:28


The emphasis of the Bible and 2000 years Church history shows us that God is a missionary God.  And as the Father sends the Son for our salvation and the renewal of the whole cosmos, so Christ sends us into the world as his ambassadors to share this unstoppable story of God’s love and amazing grace.

“As the Father sends me so I send you….Go into all the world and preach the gospel…”   John 20:21 & Mark 16:15


It is precisely because God is a community or Trinity of Three, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that fellowship and what the Bible calls ‘meeting together’ has such a high priority and value among Christians.  This is a time we share our lives together and pray with each other and laugh and cry together. It is a time to “see God” in each and every person.

“Do not neglect meeting together. . . .but encourage one another…” Hebrews 10:25
