This is our story :: and we’re delighted that you’d like to read it :: our volunteer training mornings, our local and national news in our newsletters, responding to topics and published articles.

17.  September/October 2020 :: Its been such a joy to resume and share some of our sessions with our Schools again.  One of the first was pre-recorded primary session, Creation, for Yr3. Teachers and pupils alike are loving the virtual interaction from us,  and hearing the story afresh – God the Creator offering us a picture of how he cares for us.   This is one of their pieces of craftwork

Following UK government advice issued on Monday 16th March 2020, the trustees of REinspired have agreed to suspend all Assembly’s, school and church sessions until further notice. We recognise that this is disappointing for our team, volunteers and schools. However, we are taking this measure to provide the best care for those we encounter and the health and safety of our staff and volunteers.  We will continue to work hard behind the scenes during this time and look forward to being with you again soon. Please be assured of our prayers and support during this difficult time.
