InSPIREd Sunday #468 : 16-18 April 2022

 

  Welcome to InSPIREd Sunday where we share inspirational architecture such as churches, synagogues, cemeteries, or other religious buildings each and every weekend 

As it is Easter I think now is as good as any for my last post on Inspired Sunday. I stared looking after it a year ago in the hope it would gain a bit more interest but alas this has not been the case, apart from myself, Jim, Linda and a few others the posts have been diminishing. I would like to thank you all for contributing while I have been looking after the blog and can only wish you well in your blogging. I will continue publishing my blog the Church Explorer as usual and I and sure Jim and Linda will be doing the same. My thanks to Sally for giving me the chance to look after this blog and I wish you all the very best for the future

God Bless

This week the Church Explorer returns to St Helen's Church in Abingdon for a look around the inside 

Happy Easter

  Welcome to InSPIREd Sunday where we share inspirational architecture such as churches, synagogues, cemeteries, or other religious buildings each and every weekend

Sorry to have to announce this but Inspired Sunday which I help host will be closing at the end of the month. I have decided not to carry on hosing it as I find it quite a lot of work trying to ensure that I post Inspired Sunday for you along with the other blogs I write, as it is there are only a few people who post on here so I am afraid that Inspired Sunday will be closing down. If anyone wishes to take over then let me or Sally know.
