Urban Presence is a Christian organisation and U.K. registered charity seeking to resource Christians, churches and organisations living and working in inner-city Manchester, England, and to make the wider Church aware of and take responsibility for the 'mission-field on it's doorstep'.
In the Bible Jesus talks about those who follow him as being salt and light in the world (Matt 5 v13-14). In Manchester around 75% of the population live in the urban areas of the city, but 75% of the Christian population live in the suburban areas. This means most of the salt and light is spread among a minority of the people. Urban Presence is about trying to address that imbalance.
"Should I not be concerned for that great city?"
Jonah 4 v11
