Reimagining Mission from Urban Places

There’s an open invitation to anyone interested in mission in urban places to attend an event at St Chad’s Church, Coleman Road, Leicester on the evening of 2 April. 

The evening will discuss the challenges and blessings of mission amongst those who are marginalised and will also launch a book by a member of one of our city churches, Anna Ruddick. 

Her new book “Reimagining Mission from Urban Places” has been commended by Bishop Martyn, who said: “In a church where the words mission and transformation have become ubiquitous, Anna asks deep and searching questions about what we really mean by these words. Full of real life stories, sensitively and skilfully interpreted, this book has both affirmed me in my calling and ministry while also challenging my perspective on life and helping to grow my faith.”

To book to attend the discussion and book launch, see more details here.

Anna Ruddick is a community theologian and researcher who facilitates theological reflection and learning for leaders, congregations and Christian organisations seeking to deepen and strengthen their relationships with their local community.

She holds a Doctorate in Practical Theology and, in addition to her role as Core team member for Urban Life, is a Community Engagement Associate for Livability, a Research Fellow at Bristol Baptist College, and a trustee of the William Temple Foundation.
