Church Minister: Terry Hinks

Having studied economics as an undergraduate, Terry felt called to church ministry and undertook his training at Mansfield College, Oxford.  He was ordained in 1986 and served in churches in Hereford, Reading, Romsey before coming to Bourne End in 2015.  He is minister of the United Reformed Churches at Cores End and Trinity, High Wycombe, as well as working with the Chiltern Group (a local group of URCs and ecumenical churches).  He has had a longstanding interest in Christian unity, community engagement and the care of God’s creation, alongside a deep love of the bible, stillness, and prayer.   He has long enjoyed writing prayers and meditations and sharing these in worship quiet days and publications.  He contributes to the BRF New Daylight Bible notes and had a book of prayers and reflections on the gospels – Praying the Way published in 2018.  He enjoys walking and exploring the countryside with his wife Elizabeth, time with his family and friends, bread-making, reading, gardening and more recently stained glass making.
