Meet our supporters below.
Freedom Church is as its name suggests, free and independent, yet we are in relationship with local churches as well. We are actively involved in Barnstaple Churches Together and other joint initiatives. We consider ourselves to be a part of the church in North Devon. Our heart is to see a unity of relationship and co-operation developing amongst the churches, leading to God's commanded blessing of revival. We meet at the Freedom Centre in Barnstaple at 10:30am on Sundays and at various other times during the week.
Our vision is to help each Church member to find and fulfil their personal vision.
To be a people who love and serve God, each other and the community. Supporting and encouraging each other to discover and fulfil our callings and destinies and making disciples to see our community transformed.

It is responsible for the management of a range of projects dealing with the care, education, relief of poverty, suffering and hardship of vulnerable client groups. Many of those using the services of Freedom may be homeless, have substance misuse issues, a history of offending behaviour, mental health issues or other life controlling problems.
We are a growing, vibrant evangelical church in Barnstaple committed to discipleship through relationship.

These are supplemented by home groups and personal relationship building and we have a wide selection of activities targeted at children, youth, the elderly and the community.
Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year. We address this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. We help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.
Programmes to support young people
We run programmes that encourage young people to take responsibility for themselves – helping them build the life they choose rather than the one they’ve ended up with.
The Business Programme provides money and support to help young people start up in business.The Team Programme is a 12-week personal development course, offering work experience, qualifications, practical skills, community projects and a residential week. Get Intos are short courses offering intensive training and experience in a specific sector to help young people get a job. Development Awards are small grants to enable young people to access education, training or work. Community Cash Awards are grants to help young people set up a project that will benefit their community. XL clubs give 14-16 year olds who are at risk of truanting, exclusion and underachievement, a say in their education. They aim to improve attendance, motivation and social skills.
