Some history

Welcome to Hook Norton Baptist Church

We are a small village church serving our local community in Hook Norton, Oxfordshire.  Our regular weekly activities include Fellowship group, Outreach, Coffee Morning, Parent & Toddler Group, Sunday School and Prayer meetings.  Sunday worship is aided by a lively band of musicians who lead us in contemporary Christian songs as well as old favourites. 



Our Sunday morning services are usually at 10.30 am




What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the Christian faith.


Who is it for?

Alpha is for anyone who is curious.  The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.  No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.


How does it work?

Alpha (at Hooky) is eight sessions with the option of a Saturday away in the middle.  Each session includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.  At any point, if you think Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem.  There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge. 


How much is it?

There’s no charge to do Alpha, even the food is free.


Alpha on Wednesdays – still not too late to join,

at the Baptist Hall – running twice, you choose when:


12.00 noon-1.30pm, including a light lunch


7.00-9.00pm, including supper.

Solar PV Panels


Our solar panels have been generating electricity for four years now, and during this time we have been keeping accurate records:


We installed our panels using a favourable loan from Hook Norton Low Carbon on the rear of our building (see picture).  Not many people see this view (for reasons explained here).

Pete & Kim

Last year we welcomed our new pastor, Peter Brookes and his wife, Kim.  Peter is now with us on a part time basis as he is also working as a professional project manager in the telecoms industry.  He joins us from Studley Baptist Church, Warwickshire, where he was Lay Pastor between 2003 and 2010.  Peter and his wife Kim have moved into Hook Norton at The Well House, Queen Street.

We are involved with a number of activities and organisations that strengthen the local community, including Care Group for older people, children’s and youth activities.  We also work closely with St Peter’s church on a number of activities, such as JAM Club at the village primary School, and an annual Lent series of teaching and learning.


We are affiliated to the Cornerstone group of Baptist fellowships in the north Cotswolds, and are a member church of the Baptist Union of Great Britain.




“I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Romans 8:38,39 (NIV)
