2019 Autumn Arts & Crafts Festival at Barrington Presbyterian Church

From jewelry and ceramics to ribbon wreaths and 3D origami, our 2019 Autumn Arts & Crafts Festival is coming up on Sat Oct 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and it’s going to be great! We’ll have vendors from a variety of arts and crafts disciplines, plus a tart table, a bake sale, and lots of raffles. There will also be a fun maker space for creative kids to explore different art materials and tools.

Come meet the artists and craftspeople, shop for unique handmade objects, and enjoy a lovely fall day with us! It all takes place at Barrington Presbyterian Church, 400 County Road, Barrington 02806.

For more information, please contact Janet at 401 254 6020 or email her at nknits@gmail.com.

Lenten Movie + Discussion Series

Everyone is welcome to come and watch these 3 Lent-themed movies with us and then stay for a discussion. Screenings start at 6:30 pm.

Wed., March 20: “Chocolat” – A French town, complacent in their homogenous, ordered life, is unsettled by a chocolatier who arrives to bring delight, disruption and love in the middle of their Lent.

Wed, April 3: “The Overnighters” – A provocative documentary about a pastor in North Dakota who led his church to follow Christ’s directive to love their neighbors–the desperate, poor, rootless men who flocked to new oil jobs in towns that didn’t want them.

Wed, April 17: “Places in the Heart” – A young widow in segregated, Depression-era Texas fights to save her farm, helped by a blind white man and a poor black man. Their shared struggles culminate in a uniting celebration of Communion, with the community passing each other both the elements and the peace of God.

All movies will be shown in the Graybill Room at the church, with popcorn!
