When Jesus was on earth 2000 years ago, the streets that he walked became 'miracle streets'. The first Christian Church was born on the streets of Jerusalem as crowds gathered to hear the first evangelists declare a message of freedom, hope and reconciliation. Though opposition from religious leaders was fierce, their success in reaching ordinary people was dramatic. Thousands gave up everything to follow Jesus. Miracle Street was born on the shopping precincts, parks and high streets along the south coast of England and then grew rapidly across the UK and beyond. It has been quite a journey!
