Urban Presence is 21

Our celebration of 21 years of Urban Presence (also the official launch of Paul's book 'Mission With') on 19 May 2017 was a brilliant evening. Over 70 of our favourite people in one room, including Les Isaac, founder of Street Pastors, who travelled up from London specially. It was great to renew old friendships over hotpot and cake and give thanks together for the privilege of serving God in the inner-city. We had a presentation (view slides here) whizzing through 21 years in 15 minutes, a video vox-pop of greetings and stories from a number of those we have worked with, and 'Mission With' was launched with a reading, an interview of the author and some words from Les, before our chair Dwight gave some closing thoughts on the future.

Big thanks to everyone who came, and especially to Marijke Hoek for MCing, Brunswick Church for hosting, our trustees for hard work behind the scenes and to the kitchen and technical crews.
