The Oldham Circuit is a new Circuit within the Methodist Church in Britain. We are made up of the former Oldham & Saddleworth and Shaw & Royton Circuits in the Manchester & Stockport District. The Circuit, to the north of the Manchester conurbation, encompasses the Oldham Metropolitan Borough and includes churches in rural, suburban and urban settings. We are also excited to be developing new work in Oldham Town Centre.
We still need some help with the leadership of our new circuit. We need someone to take on the role of Circuit Steward with responsibility for finance. We pay for the services of a Circuit Finance Officer who does the day-to-day business of the Circuit, prepares financial statements and prepares budget reports. The Circuit Steward responsible for finance is to be the compliance officer, ensuring that our Methodist ways are followed, helping the Circuit to develop policy and make budget decisions and to represent all financial matters at the Circuit Meeting. If you can help with this, or know someone who might, please contact the Superintendent Minister.
The Methodist Church has a commitment to being a growing, evangelistic, inclusive and justice-seeking church. You can read how our mission priorities reflect those of the Methodist Church in Britain by going to the "Our Mission" tab above.
The Superintendent Minister is the Revd Dr Adrian Burdon
