Refuge Church began as a vision shared between a group of like-minded people who had a great desire to share the love of Christ in the Southeast Massachusetts and Rhode Island area. This group assembled early on from various different churches and backgrounds specifically for prayer. As time went on it became clear to us that we had a passion to see people awakened by the goodness of God in Christ and were also drawn to the Mount Hope Bay area. Here we found working families, artists, youth, college students, and the unique kind of culture we were drawn to expose to that compassionate love of Christ. We launched in Warren, Rhode Island in June of 2015.
