Founded in 2014, Urban Life is a network of people exploring and researching new approaches to mission and Christian presence in deprived and marginalised urban neighbourhoods
Urban Life provides practical, local and accessible training to Christian groups, intentional communities and churches in challenging urban areas and neighbourhoods that have been pushed to the margins
Urban Life brings equipping, training and research to your own local context that relates to your own situation and the challenges you face
Urban Life is for people who are passionate about cities. It is for those who belong to or have moved into neighbourhoods that have been marginalised and feel overlooked. We seek to connect with the raw experience of life in these areas and learn what following Jesus might look like in our particular places. By engaging in theological reflection and community formation we seek to understand how a Jesus-centred presence might bring a fresh imagination for life in contemporary urban communities and troubled places.
