Making Sense of the Fragments - Jesus in the City, Manchester, 6-8 Sept, 2013
Jesus in the City is the UK Urban Mission Congress, held every 3 years in a different city around the United Kingdom.
The 2013 event, Making Sense of the Fragments, while primarily for people involved in urban ministry from Greater Manchester and across the UK, was also open to anyone interested in learning about or supporting ministry and mission in inner-city and housing estate areas.
We lead increasingly fragmented lives in fragmented communities and fragmented cities. What part can faith play in bringing the fragments together and creating a new Kingdom-inspired picture? Making Sense of the Fragments was an opportunity to come together with others to share experiences, to reflect together, to celebrate each others’ stories, to be inspired to action.
Making Sense of the Fragments sought to creatively celebrate expressions of ministry and mission in urban situations. We have now largely turned this website from a "it's coming" to a "what happened", with reports, blogs, photos and audio downloads from the congress now available to read, look at and listen to. Enjoy.
