Salfords unfolding story of social change and growing churches.
09 May 2012
Dave King shares his exciting story of how God has worked across the city of Salford. Raised in the city as the son of a local pastor during the 60's and 70's he and his wife Karen now lead a church there. He tells his story of the difficulties his parents faced ministering in a city of poverty, with the closing of the docklands, high crime rates and gang warfare, and the promise God gave to them over 20 years ago when they felt called to kneel on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal amidst the derelict docklands and pray that God would bring restoration to their city. God spoke to them clearly that day and gave them the promise that the world would come to Salford one day. This seemed an impossible word, but God spoke to them on the very spot where Media City Uk stands today, opened in 2012 as a new centre for the BBC and Granada TV, broadcasting across the world and bringing world leaders to be interviewed there. God had a long term plan for Salford and Dave and Karen along with many other Christians in the area have been praying for Gods promises to be fulfilled in their city.
