Urban Seed's vision is to see communities of hope, healing and justice. It's just one way in which Urban Seed embody the way of Jesus.
Norlane is a northern suburb of Geelong. The area had its heyday in the 1960s, when it was a busy working class neighbourhood housing workers from nearby factories, including Ford. When the car industry went into decline in the 1970s, hundreds of Norlane residents lost their jobs. Many in Norlane now experience long-term unemployment and generational poverty.
However, this is a resilient neighbourhood, as evidenced by the enthusiasm of local people who have got involved with Urban Seed projects. Urban Seed has a committed and energetic residential community.
Embodying The Way is the theme for SURRENDER's upcoming conference in March 2017. It explores what it means to embody the way of Jesus in every aspect of life. You can find out more about the conference here.
