Dialogue in the Dark

This Sunday Jesus meets Nicodemus. The encounter takes place in the dark of night and the character seems a shady leader – perhaps more comfortable at Davos or "charity dinners". How does Jesus talk with him? You’ll have to come along and find out! (We’ll have breakfast communion too.)

10.30-12 Sunday

Abundant Lives

Happy New Year!

This Sunday we will be beginning our new series as we journey through the Gospel of John. Between now and Easter, each Sunday we will explore a different encounter between Jesus and the men and women he met along the way. What do these encounters teach us about the character of Jesus? What can we learn about ourselves and our own relationship with him? And what can we learn about God’s abundant generosity as we try to follow him?

This Sunday we will begin with an introduction to the new series and an opportunity to explore our church motto for 2018.

Everybody’s welcome here!

Christmas calm

After two very busy but very special Sundays, the fourth Sunday in advent will be an opportunity for us to find calm as Christmas Eve chaos whirls around us. It will be a short service of quiet reflection and prayer as we light candles and dig deep to remember some of the earliest Christmas traditions within the Christian faith.

10.30 – 11.30am

And then on Christmas Day (Monday) we’ll have a short but special celebration service with the usual Christmas Quiz, lots of carols and festive fun. All this will be at the slightly earlier time of 10-11am … before the Inspired People’s Project arrive to do their special Christmas lunch for older people.

Christmas Day!

Everybody’s welcome here!

Beer & Carols

Advent Extravaganza

The third Sunday in Advent is cause for a double celebration: an advent extravaganza.

Our morning service will see the culmination of the last few weeks of rehearsals when our drama groups and scratch choir finally take to the proverbial stage. Who knows what entertainment and inspiration that will hold … and perhaps more importantly, how God will choose to speak to us through all their imagination and hard work.

10.30 – 11.30

Everybody’s welcome here!

And then in the afternoon, we are all invited to gather at The Bluebell Pub on Barlow Road where we will join friends from all around Levy for "Beer & Carols".

4-5pm … more details below …

Water birth

The second Sunday in Advent will be a very special occasion indeed as two of our lovely young people are going to be baptised. Thinking about being ‘born again’ during a season of expectant hope for the birth of a saviour seems a particularly exciting combination so do come along and join the celebration.

We will be lighting the second candle on our advent ring and having our collection for Boaz too (see Boaz box below). And there will be more rehearsals for our special carol service.

After the service we will celebrate with a church lunch. We are all asked if we might bring ‘sides’ – pasta salads, crisps, snacks etc – or cakes and desserts. (No pressure – there should be plenty anyway).


Everybody’s welcome here!

No room at the inn

This week is the first Sunday in Advent, so we will light the first candle on our advent ring and begin our collection for Boaz.

Our theme this week is ‘No room at the inn’, and we are very lucky that Jez Green has agreed to share worship with us to help us explore this.

Jez’s work is spit between the charity Mustard Tree and the Manchester Homelessness partnership. He is also a poet. He is often called on to share his experience of working with the homeless and sometimes called on to share his poetry, but he has never been asked to combine the two, so at Inspire this Sunday he will be doing this for the first time!

Jez would really like part of the morning’s worship to include a question and answer session, so please start thinking about what you would like to know about homelessness in Manchester, and what is being done to combat it. .


Everybody’s welcome here!
