Hope you’re all having a great week.
The astute among you might have noticed that we’ve stopped sending out the weekly Inspire email – we will still have devotional content on the website, especially articles that relate to being a Christian in the media but we didn’t want to inundate your inboxes so I’ll just flag it up articles in the weekly mailing rather than sending them as a separate email. If you would still like a weekly inspiring email, there are lots of great alternatives to Inspire out there but three that we’d particularly recommend are:
Je Ne Regret Rien
The eight-time award-winning documentary, Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, will be holding its London premiere on Tuesday June 26, just weeks before the Olympic games begin.
