PURPOSES and HOPES
‘A seedbed for urban change’
The Newbigin family gave special permission for Newbigin House to be named in honour of Lesslie Newbigin (1909-1998). An influential Christian leader who served as a Minister in Winson Green after returning from three decades of service in India, Lesslie Newbigin articulated the tough urban questions, dedicating his life to finding and living the answers in both Majority and Western World urban contexts. It is hoped that Newbigin’s life and insights will inspire a new generation of Christian workers to respond to growing urban injustices in our day and help see abundant community cultivated from the ground up around the world.
