Inspire is an independent, non-denominational Christian Church, located in the beautiful seaside town of Heysham, Lancashire. We firmly believe the Bible is God’s word and by it we build, strengthen, encourage and equip people to fulfil all God has called us to.
We are committed to helping people discover their purpose in life by having a more dynamic relationship with God through Jesus Christ, to know Him and to grow in Him. We want to help people grow in their calling and to stand strong through the challenges of life, helping them hold on to and pursue their dreams, hopes and aspirations.
We want to be proactive and creative in reaching our community with the loving gospel of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit.
He Inspire's us so we can Aspire.
“. . . Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it” – Hab 2:2 ESV.
