Could you and your urban community benefit from some informed inspiration? While many Christians are aware of the vast, urban needs in the world, few find meaningful, personal responses. We therefore offer mobilisation opportunities to invite people into practical, urban engagement.

Please contact: Lianne for more details.


Ash & Anji Barker are available to speak at mobilising events, conferences and churches. For more details contact Lianne.


Ash Barker’s has written 8 books with this latest Risky Compassion launched in London May 6th 2015. Publications are also planned that can inspire and inform urban engagement under Urban Shalom Publishing or ISUM Publishing. To see and full list and to order your copies see here.

Newbigin Annual Public Lecture

To stimulate Christians into deeper urban engagement we offer a public lecture with a high profile urban Christian leader who embodies a contemporary spirit of Lesslie Newbigin. We also commission leaders who are in our Newbigin Associates and Award programs and bring together supporters and neighbours to pray and give thanks for the opportunities we have. The first Newbigin Annual Public Lecture is to be held in Winson Green, 7:30pm, 3rd May, 2017.
