Barrington, IL -- Village Church of Barrington has completed a three-year, $2.7-million renovation project. They will be hosting a grand opening and dedication in their weekend services on April 6 and 7. The event is open to the community.

The church undertook the project to address several issues: accessibility, security, aging infrastructure, wear and tear, and the need for adequate gathering place. In addition to the refreshed look, it gained 11,000 square feet of new ministry space. This project reflects Village Church's commitment to remain a vital part of the Barrington community.

The church is offering two opportunities to celebrate. The first will be held on Saturday night April 6 at 5:00 PM, followed by a meal and tour of the facility. The second will be held on Sunday morning April 7 at 9:00 AM, also followed by a meal and tour. The normal 10:30 AM service will not be offered that day.
