10 Years On. Only just begun.

It is 10 years to the day since the Inspire Centre was opened and Levenshulme United Reformed Church was reborn as Inspire Church. How time has flown by … and what wonderful things God has done. This Sunday we will take time to give thanks and to think about where God is calling us for the next 10 years.

Everybody’s Welcome!

Chatty Church

As part of our new pattern of online services, this Sunday we are starting ‘Chatty Church’ – an opportunity to jump onto Zoom and have a chat with your church friends. We’ll do what we can to recreate that sense of fellowship we used to feel when we had tea and coffee after the service.

10.30am. Sunday.

Work. Together. For. Good.

Over the next 10 weeks we will be exploring the book of Romans – St Paul’s special letter to the church in Rome. It is full of inspirational verses and careful guidance to churches experiencing change. This Sunday we will contemplate Romans 8 verse 28 – working together for good.

10.30am. On Zoom.

Looking without seeing

As we come to the end of our series on the Book of Acts and loving in the lockdown, Paul has finally reached Rome. Even as he faced the death penalty he continued to preach a gospel of inclusion and God’s love. And so must we.

Communicating across cultures

Throughout the Book of Acts, the early Christians travel further and further from Jerusalem to spread the good news of Jesus. As they meet people from different places and backgrounds they have to learn to communicate across cultures.

This Sunday, we will be hearing from two friends who themselves have given a lot of thought to communicating about Jesus in different ways and across different cultures. Join us to find out more.

10.30am Sunday.

Blinded by prejudice

This Sunday we revisit a story about a man who hated the early church and all that it stood for … but on one dramatic road trip his world was turned upside down.


Your favourite sunglasses!

Please will you bring a pair of sunglasses … just in case there are any very bright lights.

We will all log-in at 10.30am for our service.
