Highlands Methodist Church - Hospitality in the Midst of our CommunityOur Mission is 'Sharing God's Love in the Community'All Are Welcome
Our MinisterRev Julia Monaghan, our minister, moved to Leigh from Birmingham in 2012, along with husband Sam, the Chief Executive for Methodist Homes for the Aged. Previously Julia worked for 25 years as a Local Authority Social Worker then served for 5 years as a Methodist minister on the Birmingham circuit. Supporting Julia is a church family that includes local preachers, a mission enabler for older people, church stewards and many members who take care of our building.
Julia will be moving on to the next stage of her journey when she leaves us in August 2018 to go to the East Midlands area.

It's the Season of Lent (Find the details here.)The Lent Course is running at Housegroup (above). Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday (2018 - 14 February) and ends on the day before Easter Sunday (2018 - 1 April). Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring." The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry. Learn more about Lent by downloading and reading this leaflet and then by signing up for a Lent course - details here - "Another Story Must Begin," based on the film and novel of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.Concert in Aid of MENCAPOn March 24th, the Southend Wind Band will be giving a concert in the Church at 7.00 pm in aid of MENCAP.
