WHO WE ARE
We are a Jesus centered church that believes in the power of God to transform lives. We take hold of our God given purpose with both hands; stepping into possibilities and futures beyond what we could imagine.

Planted in Albany in 1999, Inspire Church lives and breathes the people it serves. Inspire is a contemporary Christian Church based in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland. Inspire Church is a Spirit-filled, family-focused creative church that's incredibly passionate about the goodness of God. Inspire Church is a place where people of all ages and backgrounds are inspired to believe the impossible for their loves and grasp their God-given future with both hands - and have a lot of fun doing it.
Wander into Inspire Church on any given day and you’ll feel like you’ve found your long lost extended family. We like having fun, we love having a laugh and we believe that the purpose of church is to 'do life together'. This means that we are passionate about raising up teams of people who can lead and grow the vision and heart of the church, connecting with their purposes in God. We love to see people grab hold of their passions and giftings and so, we raise up leaders, mentors and members to take an active part of the life of the church.
Doing life together
Inspire Church is built around people, so one of our biggest priorities is simply to do life together. We encourage you to get alongside like-minded people and build relationships with each other and this is where iGroups fit in. Inspire runs many different iGroups that take place weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
