Church pastor and Norwich City chaplain is guest speaker 

Soul Church pastor and Norwich City club chaplain Jon Norman will be the guest speaker at an inspirational dinner evening on Thursday, November 9 at the Mercure Hotel, Boundary Road, Norwich, NR3 2BA.

Jon, 38, whose life is an ‘adventure of faith’ and a story of encouragement for many, is a gifted communicator who has ‘a passion to help people reach their potential in life.’  

Born in Norwich, Jon has a great heart for his home city where he is not only chaplain to Norwich City Football Club but also pastor of Soul Church which has bold plans to rebuild a £7 million 1,000-seat complex at Heartsease Lane by Easter 2020.
In 2003, Jon pioneered a youth movement in Norwich which attracted hundreds of young people every Friday night. Since then, pastor Jon and his American-born wife, Chantel, have wide experience with the Hillsong family of churches in Australia and South Africa.  Chantel is a gifted singer-musician and Jon has the ability to connect across all generations and cultures.
All visitors are welcome to the November 9 dinner which is another in the series of dinner evenings arranged by the FGB Fellowship which start at 7 for 7.30pm.
