Jesus in the City is the UK Urban Mission Congress, held every 3 years in a different city across the United Kingdom. For 2013 it is Manchester’s turn to be host and welcome delegates from near and far, as they come together to make sense of the fragmented nature of modern city life. It will feature ministry and mission in Manchester’s inner-city, estate and city centre areas for those coming from other part of the UK (and maybe further afield?) to visit, share with and learn from.
Making Sense of the Fragments will be primarily for people involved in urban ministry from Greater Manchester and across the UK, but is also open to anyone interested in learning about or supporting ministry and mission in inner-city and housing estate areas.
However, as part of JITC, there will be Campolo and Curry, an evening of excellent food, uplifting music and incisive discourse open to all on Saturday 7th September 2013, featuring a keynote speech from special guest Dr. Tony Campolo, and also music from singer/songwriter and activist Andy Flannagan.
For this evening, JITC have hired the Eastern Pearl Indian Banqueting Hall (250 Plymouth Grove, Manchester, M13 0BG). Doors will open 7.30pm, with the first course served at 8pm.
Tickets cost £17.50, inclusive of a 3 course meal with soft drinks, followed by tea/coffee, and can be booked on the JITC website.
