How can the Church reach housing estates?

The Church is supposed to be classless, but it’s a fact that in many places it has proved easier to reach people from "better-off" backgrounds.

He was in Bangor speaking at the convention and Colm Flanagan, Premier’s Northern Ireland regional producer, caught up with him there. Hear from Mez as he explains 20 Schemes in more detail.
