Urban Expression: creative church planting in the inner city
Urban Expression is a mission agency that recruits, equips, deploys and networks self-financing teams, pioneering creative and relevant expressions of the Christian church in under-churched areas of the inner city.
Urban Expression is committed to incarnational ministry on the margins and amongst the poor, and encourages teams to move into urban neighbourhoods to work with others to pioneer exciting, grass-roots, transformative way of being church which seek God’s kingdom of justice and peace.
Urban Expression invites team members to move in and get involved; to build relationships, listen carefully and learn from others; to discover what God is already doing and join in!
Urban Expression has a blog!
This is not your average church/ theology blog. It is an attempt to communicate the grittiness, complexity, uniqueness and beauty of the inner city life and what mission looks like in this context, through the stories and reflections of our teams.
If you want an insight into what urban mission looks like in real life on a day to day level, take a look:
