About us

Assemblies of the First Born UK is an established national and international group of churches that preaches and teaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ without compromise.

We celebrated the 50th Anniversary of our formation in the UK in 2011.

We believe in the importance of prayer and fasting as a foundation with preaching and teaching the Word with clarity and in a straight forward manner to encourage, inspire and empower all who attend and engage with our services to fulfil the God-given purpose for their life.

Assemblies of the First Born is a registered UK Charity with fifteen churches throughout the UK and three churches in the USA, Brooklyn, New York, White Plains, New York and Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Florida.


We are members of the Evangelical Alliance and actively work with several other agencies to engage with our community. 

Our vision is to continue to grow as a church where individuals and families can come and feel the love and acceptance of God through the church, where people can grow and develop in the knowledge of the person and principles of Jesus Christ and to outreach into our local communities to make a practical difference in people’s daily lives.

We seek to deliver the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a manner which supports the needs of children, young people, adults, the elderly and those that are in need.


The late Bishop Charles S. Wright served faithfully as the General Overseer of Assemblies of the First Born from 1961-2017.
