Christian Insurance Service was established in 1992 by Dave & Joyce Mcharry as a trading title of their main business Barrie of Durham.

In 1987 Dave & Joyce bought a business established in the early 1960’s named R.J.Barrie & Partner. Dave brought a wealth of experience to the business having started his career at Royal Insurance at the age of 17.

Barrie of Durham quickly grew, and established an excellent reputation for service with both personal and business clients. Then in 1992 when they became Christians, it quickly became apparent that there was a lack of understanding by many companies to the needs of the Church and the Charity sector, and so Christian Insurance was formed to answer this need.

In 1991, Dave & Joyce’s daughter Julie, joined them in the business, followed by son-in-law Kevin Wilson, making it a truly family business. Now we are just waiting for the next generation to join us!

Christian Insurance has grown from strength to strength. Over the years there have beens some very strange requests including the insuring of ex-rolling stock from the railways, but we usually manage to find a solution to any problem.

With over 28 years of experience, we look forward to being of service to you!
