Hosannahs from home

Once again, this Sundaywe will not meet together at the Inspire Centre.

Instead, we will meet together and worship online using Zoom. For those that have used it the last couple of weeks we’ve had some fun – it’s very easy and you can get it on your computer, laptop, tablet or even a phone. All the details are in the box below.

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

This week its Palm Sunday hence the Hallelujahs from Home. But there will be lots for you to get involved with too so:

Show us any Easter crafts you’ve been making (or just nice Easter stuff you’ve got – not chocolate eggs!)

Have some paper and scissors handy as we’re going to try making origami crosses.

I look forward to seeing you all pop up on my screen on Sunday morning. Drop me a line if you want the Zoom link ed.cox [@] lev-inspire.org.uk

God is with us!

I won’t back down

I won’t back down

Once again, this Sundaywe will not meet together at the Inspire Centre.

Instead, we will meet together and worship online using a software system called Zoom. It’s very easy and you can get it on your computer, laptop, tablet or even a phone. All the details are in the box below.

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

This week we are going to be thinking about the Parable of the Tenants in the Vineyard and our good friend Dave Fraser will be sharing reflections. But there will be lots for you to get involved with too so:

Wear your favourite T-shirt, top or jumper!

There will be some fun for kids but you might want to download and print these activity sheets.

We’re going to share communion online – so perhaps you could have a drink and some bread or a biscuit ready to share.

I look forward to seeing you all pop up on my screen on Sunday morning. Contact Ed Cox if you want the log-in details ed.cox [AT] lev-inspire.org.uk.

Inspire Church Online This Week

Following all the health guidance, this Sunday we will not meet together at the Inspire Centre.

Instead, we will meet together and worship online using a software system called Zoom. It’s very easy and you can get it on your computer, laptop, tablet or even a phone. All the details are in the box below.

We will all log-in at 10.30am for about 30-40 minutes.

For those that would like to, at 12 noon we will also meet for a short outdoor walk in Cringle Park … keeping a safe distance from one another.

12 noon at the children’s play area in Cringle Park.

I’m sure this is going to be a very strange experience for us and it won’t be without its hitches and questions … but I am also sure that the Spirit will once again move in remarkable and unexpected ways and that we will have lots of fun in an otherwise very worrying time.

If you would like to join us and need log-in details then please e-mail ed.cox [at] lev-inspire.org.uk and I’ll send you details.

God is with us!

The Lost Sons

A sheep, a coin and now a son … or perhaps two. Our series on parables turns to another classic: the so-called prodigal son.

Just like hide and seek – perhaps sometimes you need to be lost in order to be found …

Build bigger barns

Last week we were thinking about the rich young ruler who didn’t seem able to give up his wealth. This week we consider a similar story about a very rich man who built bigger barns to look after his wealth … only then to pop his clogs.

It’s an all together service so we’ll have fun exploring what it means to have too much!

Taking a camel on a bus

Have you ever tried to take your camel on the 192? It can be quite a job. I find it’s easier if you don’t load it up with too many bags – travel light and you can squeeze on a little more easily. Jesus once told a story along these lines. Come along on Sunday to hear more.

Also on Sunday, we’re going to be celebrating Church Action on Poverty Sunday with some home-made soup after the service. The soup will be provided, but please bring a little money if you’d like to make a donation to the work of Church Action on Poverty. No pressure though – just come!

Foxes, funerals & furrows

Sometimes Jesus told stories that were very short – sometimes little more than a saying. This Sunday we’re going to explore three: about foxes, funerals and furrows. But what connects them all?

Who is my neighbour?

On Sunday we revisit one of the most familiar stories in the whole Bible: the parable of the good samaritan. We will also take time to tell some of our own stories of hurt and help as we explore what it means to love our neighbours as ourselves.

Bring nothing. Just come and eat.

On Sunday everybody is invited to come and share breakfast with Inspire Church. EVERYBODY! Nobody will be excluded whoever they are – and if we run out of croissants, coffee or orange juice, we’ll go and get some more. Please share. 10.30-11.30. Sunday. Inspire.

God of small things

One of my favourite books in Arundhati Roy’s novel called The God of Small Things. It is sometimes the small stories that matter most. And this week we are considering two parables about small things – mustards seeds and yeast. Your stories matter – however small. Do come along and join us.
