Following the launch of the Foundation’s Urban Tracts series, Research Fellow Greg Smith has been working with Paul Keeble and a number of others to develop a new website for people interested in urban mission and ministry at urbanmissionuk.net.
The aim of this site is to provide a one stop gateway to all of the best resources and ideas for urban mission and ministry in the UK in the 21st Century. The website includes material and organisations working from a wide range of theological perspectives from the conservative evangelical to the radical and Catholic. Users can also subscribe to the blog page to receive news and updates by email as they are posted, and join what is hoped will become a significant, large and lively discussion group.
Greg Smith comments:
As a portal site to a huge range of urban mission material, it will never be complete, and we hope it will be constantly expanding. If you know of important organisations, literature or other resources that we have missed please use the contact form to send details to us and we will endeavour to add them as soon as possible. We would also love to hear from you with comments and reactions to this site – feedback positive or negative will help us to improve it. Please help us promote the site by sharing the link on social media and relevant email lists.
As we develop the site we would also like to recruit a small team of volunteer web editors, who could update material and help us improve the appearance and functionality of the site. If you are interested in helping, involved in urban mission, and have some web design or editing skills please get in touch via the contact form at the bottom of the home page.
