There are two Inspires publications – inspires magazine (produced quarterly) and an online monthly newsletter – inspires online. Details of how to subscribe to inspires magazine and the cost of this are below.
Over the past few years the format and frequency of production of inspires magazine has undergone some change. Unfortunately this resulted in an irregular publication schedule.
Under its new Convenership, the Information and Communication (I&C) Board met towards the end of 2014 to review inspires magazine and inspires online newsletter. It had been hoped that a part completed edition of inspires magazine which had been prepared prior to June last year could have been sent out before the end of 2014, but this was not viable.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of inspires magazine the I&C Board will produce an anniversary edition of the magazine – the first of the re-launched magazines under a new editorial group. This will be the first of four editions of the magazine for 2015, and will be published in March. Thereafter magazines will be published in June, September and December (if there are any changes to this, we will advise subscribers in advance!)
Work is currently being carried out on an updated format of the inspires online newsletter. Following the October 2014 edition of inspires online; a variety of other pressing demands and urgent priorities on the Communications Officer in November and December resulted in one final inspires online for 2014 being sent out on Christmas Eve which simply highlighted the Christmas Message from the Primus and what some of our Bishops were saying in the Press on Christmas Eve.
In addition to a monthly digest of information and news in inspires online, there will also be a regular mailing of news as and when it happens as this will be an automatic mailing linked in to the Scottish Episcopal Church website.
The first of the 2015 inspires online newsletters will be produced later this month and each month thereafter throughout the year.
Inspires online is the free monthly e-newsletter from the Scottish Episcopal Church.
Inspires is the quarterly magazine produced by the Scottish Episcopal Church. It features articles, comments, opinions and reflections from various contributors on topics of broad interest which relate to the life of the church.
