Nominate your unsung community heroes for a 2012 Inspire Award

Who are the unsung heroes in your community? Now's your chance to nominate them for a 2012 Inspire Award


Who's inspiring you?

Following last year's successful relaunch of the Inspire Awards, we're delighted to work once again with the Evangelical Alliance to present the 2012 Awards.

Who are the unsung heroes in your community?

Every month we hear great stories about people, churches and projects 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 last year, we honoured the winners and runners-up in the 2011 Inspire Awards at Westminster (individual award winner Christine Deponio is pictured right), and now we want to hear of 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 impact in a local area

Remember: we're looking for 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 later in the year for the shortlisted entries.


Make your nomination by e-mail to, and remember – we're looking for outstanding entries that will prove an inspiration to others!

Stories of some of the entrants will be featured on our websites before entries are judged and shortlists drawn up. The winners will be announced at the Awards event in Westminster in November.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to exceptional nature of this year's events with the Queen's Jubilee and the 2012 Games, many churches have been focused on planning for these. So we have extended the original closing date from 31 July to 31 August.

Now get nominating!
