Support the Barkers
After 25 years of urban mission in Melbourne and Bangkok, Ash and Anji Barker are again immersed in the life of an urban poor neighbourhood to seek transformation through Jesus. This time they are embedded in Winson Green which is a key multi-racial and multi-religious, inner city neighbourhood of Birmingham, UK.
Ash is founding Director of 'Newbigin House' based in Winson Green with a team of local residents who aim to identify, develop and release Christian leaders able to cultivate abundant community from the ground up in our new urban world( see NewbiginHouse.uk) . Ash will also be free to serve locally, speak and train widely as well as continue to lead the work of the International Society for Urban Mission as International Director.
Anji is based with the Oasis Academies team in Winson Green as school chaplain and community hub leader to help see change in Winson Green by focussing on youth and families work as well as supporting new social enterprises and churches.
