Introduction to Inspire

One of the best ways to get started with the Inspire vision is to organise a teaching retreat day at your church. Over the years, we have developed a very effective pattern, which can be seen below.

Each session is a combination of teaching, discussion, and quiet reflection.

Every participant receives a journal with all the details of the presentation, reflection exercises, and space for personal notes.

Introducing Inspire


“I feel more confident in who I am as a Christian but also as a leader in Christian ministry.”
“No matter how tired I have been going to these sessions I have always come away spiritually encouraged, refreshed and enthused to continue on in God’s mission wherever I am.”
“Thanks so much for the teaching sessions this year. I found them inspirational and I love the discussion format – it really engages those present, and we learn so much more than listening to a talk. It is one of the few places that ministers get “fed” and so is very valuable to us”
“Using this format (fellowship band), and the ideas from Inspire has been the most formative and indeed inspiring ‘thing’ for want of a better word, that I have been part of for years.”
