In 2018, the city of Chemnitz in Germany was the site of anti-immigrant and neo-Nazi demonstrations that resulted in violence. It was here that the Rev. Barry Sloan chose to start a new church or “fresh expression” called Inspire that would reach out to the city’s non-church-going community.

Originally from Northern Ireland, Sloan draws from his own experiences growing up in a divided society to inform his outreach ministry in Chemnitz. Inspire brings together a diverse community of people who always felt like church was not for them. Discipleship Ministries has produced a brief documentary on Inspire available to watch free online.
