I have to admit a strong level of ignorance when it comes to these settings.

If I follow your thoughts correctly I can remove the first of the two
entries, (that's actually in a different area of the DNS settings so it was
easy to confuse. NearlyFreeSpeech.com's interface is straightforward, but
I'm not sure why it shows what it does)

The second entry we had to add agiletecharch.com to stop the new spam
firewalls from rejecting mail. Something to do with some additional checks
they are doing.

Your SPF records are somewhat contradictory there.

The first record says that receiving servers should reject all mail except
from those listed ... which are none.

The second record says that receiving servers should accept mail sent from
servers referenced on _spf.google.com (fine), agiletecharch.com (recursive)
and sites.nearlyfreespeech.net (also fine, assuming you send mail from that
server also). The final ~all indicates that you are (technically) testing
SPF and that mail from any other server not listed should be soft failed
(not rejected but tagged).

If you're only sending from google for work, then your spf record should
look something like this:

v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all
