Who We Are

Barry Woodward

Barry Woodward grew up in Salford, Greater Manchester. At 16, he left school with no qualifications and became drawn into the Manchester music and drugs scene. This led to a life of heroin addiction and drug dealing.

After being dependent on heroin for fifteen years and spending a number of terms in prison, Barry had what he describes a 'religious experience', which resulted in his life being totally transformed. This led to him becoming an evangelist. Since then, he has worked with a number of Christian organizations and studied full time at Cliff College, where he was awarded a Diploma in Biblical Studies and Evangelistic Ministry from Sheffield University.

He is a contemporary communicator who is humourous, passionate and inspirational. 

Each year, he speaks at approximately 130 events. He also occasionally contributes to discussions related to drug issues on the BBC, Channel 4 and Sky TV. 

Barry is an accredited travelling minister with the Assemblies of God denomination, in the UK, and is also an associate evangelist with J.John of the Philo Trust. He is author of 'Once an Addict', and he and his wife Tina are members of the Bridge Church, Bolton, Greater Manchester.
