Inspire Awards 2016: changing lives

We've extended the deadline for nominating your unsung heroes for a 2016 Inspire Award to 19 September ...

STOP PRESS: deadline for entries extended until 19 September ...                    

Every day Christians across the UK are pouring love, faith and hope into their communities. Making a difference. Seeing lives changed for the better.

The Inspire Awards are back for 2016, giving us a fresh opportunity to highlight the work being done by believers making life better where they live because of their faith in Jesus.

Every month we tell great stories in our magazine, on our website and in social media about people, projects and youth initiatives across the UK making a difference because of their Christian faith. We love to tell these stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things – because they inspire us. And we hope they inspire you, too.

In November 2015, we honoured the winners and runners-up in the 2015 Inspire Awards in London (Individual Award runner-up Clare Herriott is pictured right), and now we want to hear about your unsung local heroes that make a difference to the lives they touch.


You can nominate in three categories:

  • An individual Christian in the UK who is an inspiring role model
  • A UK-based Christian-run project serving its local area
  • Work with children or young people in the UK making a real local impact

Remember: we’re looking for outstanding unsung heroes rather than already recognised national ministries.


There’ll be a prestigious trophy and prize for the winners in each section, plus a high profile awards event in Westminster in November for the shortlisted entries. Stories of some of the entrants will be featured in Inspire and on our website before entries are judged and shortlists drawn up. The winners will be announced at the Awards event in Westminster in November


Make your nomination by completing this form. Remember – we’re looking for outstanding entries that will prove an inspiration to others!

Closing date is 19 September 2016.
