    2:07 Ali Boulton - Church in new Housing Developments Part 2.

    This episode is the second part of our conversation with Ali Boulton from the New Housing Hub. In this episode we explore with Ali some of the keys to thinking about how we can engage new housing developments and see faith communities established in them. 
    Ali has for 10 years been engaged in mission on a new housing development. She moved onto a new development with her family as the first people onto the new site and set about being a blessing to all who would follow after them.  Our conversation looks at both the theoretical and practical aspects of establishing a church community on a new housing development as well as considering how churches might think about getting involved in projects nearby them.   The MigCast is hosted by Glenn Innes and is a production of the Mission Initiative Group of the Baptist Union of Scotland.

Thought provoking and worth a listen

Micro church, could it work in my context, maybe. I’ll never know unless I try. Challenging.

Inspirational and local

Great podcast, so encouraging to hear about what churches are doing more locally in Scotland and the UK. Good variety of voices and topics around what mission looks like today. My only criticism is to have more, longer more in-depth conversations would be great.
