Firwood Church is seeking a full-time Pastor to join our leadership team to work alongside our elders as a leader among leaders. 

Firwood Church was planted 20 years ago to shine the light of the gospel unreached and neglected communities. We are based in Westwood, Oldham, a richly diverse community, and one of the most challenging and socially deprived areas in the UK. We engage our community with the gospel through various opportunities, including English language classes, youth football and basketball teams, and, most recently, through the Soul Café situated in the heart of Oldham town centre.

Firwood Church is reformed, missional, complementarian, and charismatic and exists to proclaim the gospel, disciple believers, and to serve and love the least and the lost.
