Inspiration in the inbox

Daily Devotions from the United Reformed Church will start on the first Sunday of Advent (27 November) and continue throughout the year. Each day, a reading, reflection and short prayer, written by one of 85 writers from different places and perspectives in the URC, will arrive in your inbox. Over 750 people have signed up to receive the free Daily Devotion service so far. See here, to add your name. Andy Braunston, who is coordinating the project, said: ‘Many people read them on their phone whilst commuting or they might offer a time of quiet in the midst of the day.’ 

Some photographs of Rev David Pickering’s recent induction service can be found here.
