Braving the wilderness

Before heading out on a three year journey, Jesus spent time in the wilderness. Why? At times, life brings us all wilderness experiences and often we try to avoid them. This Sunday we will explore what they might have to teach us.

Well Pleased

Early Matthew’s gospel, Jesus takes the plunge and joins others who are being baptised by John in the River Jordan. Unlike others though, as Jesus emerges from the river something very special happens. If you’d like to know what, then you’d better come along on Sunday to find out. Suffice it to say though, somebody was well pleased.

You Belong!

This Sunday, Inspire Church begins a new series as we journey through Matthew’s gospel up until Easter. This is part of our annual ‘routine’ as we remind ourselves about the life of Jesus and the special community he created. The gospel-writer Matthew emphasised the importance of Jesus’s teachings about how we create community in troubled times so there’s much we can learn about our own situation as we enter a very uncertain new year.

10.30am.

Embrace the darkness

On this the fourth Sunday in advent we’re taking a break from all the Christmas palava to sit quietly and reflect. Celtic christianity teaches us that new beginnings grow out of darkness and that the time of advent is perhaps less about eager anticipation of a future hope but faithful knowing that God is with us, even in the darkest of days. So come along for a time of quiet reflection away from all the hustle and bustle around us.

As we approach the third Sunday in advent we have a very special day in store. In the morning we will have a special carol service with lots of singing and our very own Inspire Church Choir. There will be some fun and games too.

And then in the afternoon we will join the folk at the Bluebell Pub for a ‘beer and carols’ session from 4-5pm. Further details in the picture below.

Follow the star – come along!

Immaculate

There’s nothing better than a Christmas surprise? Mmmm. Not sure Joseph would agree. Don’t worry though, Matthew’s gospel has it covered. Come and find out how!

Advent continues at Inspire Church as we think about the immaculate conception … and other Christmas surprises.

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.

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.
