100 Years // Peace

As many of you will know, this Sunday marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and we will join brothers and sisters around the world in remembering and in praying for peace.

As an act of unity, we will gather as normal at 10.30 at Inspire Church but then at 10.45 we will walk down to St Peter’s Church of England and join them for some remembrance activities and the 2 minute silence at 11am.

We will then return to Inspire for our own short ceremony and prayers as well as tea and coffee. Do come along and join in.

Sam speaks up

Children often speak the truth that adults need to hear. This was certainly the case in the story of our latest Bible child: Samuel. This Sunday we’ll be thinking more about the his story and the news he shared with Eli the Priest.

Bread boy

We couldn’t do a series about children in the Bible without remembering the young lad who shared his loaves and fishes with a crowd of thousands! So that’s what we’re doing this Sunday … and sharing communion too.

Sunday – 10.30 – Inspire

Clever Tim

This week we think about another Bible child – Timothy – who apparently showed a particularly aptitude for studying scriptures at an early age. It’s an activity Sunday and so there will be all kinds of opportunities for learning, reflection, prayer, fellowship and fun.

Super Sister

As we continue to learn about different children in the Bible, this Sunday we remember super sister Miriam. Do come along to find out more about a young woman who looked out for her brother in the bullrushes and even found a way of returning him to their mother.

Also, Mia and Elsie will be doing a sponsored cake sale after the service to raise funds for a power wheelchair for a friend so do bring along some punds and pennies to support them.

And let me know if you’ve got a favourite children’s story (sacred or secular) you’d like to share.

Brave Dave

As we get going on our series about ‘children of God’ where better to start than with Old Testament hero brave Dave – the kid that brought down the man-mountain Goliath.

It’s an activity-based service some come along expecting drama, discussion and lots of fun. We’re also going to be doing some thinking about the children of Mozambique.

And let me know if you’ve got a favourite children’s story (sacred or secular) you’d like to share.

Commended

The apostle Paul is not known for his progressive views about women! That reputation may not be entirely justified though as there are numerous examples of women in leadership roles in the early churches he was establishing – including Phoebe! On Sunday, as part of our summer unplugged series, we’ll find out more about her important role in the early church.
