Rev Norman Hooks
Minister of Highlands Methodist Church
Norman was born and lived the first 19 years of his life in West Belfast, N. Ireland. He is married to Jan, they have 5 grown up children, with 7 grandchildren. Norman and Jan met at Cliff College, Derbyshire, and since then have lived, studied and worked in Berwick on Tweed, Somerset, Scotland, back to N. Ireland, then to Essex, over to Bristol, to Buckingham as a Methodist Minister, and then in 2007 to Southend.
He loves being with the family, enjoys exercise, plays the cornet (not very well), but his real passion is Jesus and seeing lives transformed by his amazing love and grace! He believes that the Christian life should be profoundly spiritual, and also deeply practical. Alongside this he can be very forgetful, and a bit of a scatterbrain.
Worship, Services and Fellowship
We meet for traditional morning worship on most Sundays at 10.30am and enjoy tea & coffee together after the service. We'd be delighted if you came and joined us.
The exception is the 1st Sunday of each month. On those days we'll meet for an informal Café Church, also at 10.30am.
Come and join us every Tuesday for Morning Prayer from 9.00am till 10.00am.
Come and join us at the Coffee Mornings every Wednesday and Saturday 10.00am till 12.00noon in the Church.
Also, a friendly group of Highlands' people meet every two weeks at 7.30pm on Tuesdays for Housegroup. A warm welcome awaits you if you would like to join us. Contact Kathy on 01702 714528.
