4th June 2024 59 minute listen

The first in an exciting new series in collaboration with The Hopeful Activists podcast. In this episode we discover the joys and challenges of following Jesus on an urban estate. 

We’ll hear from Allan Finnegan from Emmanuel Baptist Church in Netherton in Liverpool, Tom Grant, also from Emmanuel Baptist Church and Head of Proximity, as well as Tal Watkins and Marie Robinson from the Netherton Community Grocery

And we hear from Bishop Philip North, who tells us that there are two stories: amazing life and hope on urban estates, and also a church that has deep inequality within its structures. 

Allan’s GoFundMe for his treatment is here.
