Estate vs Middle Class discipleship

I was having a good chat with a mate of mine who is also an indigenous council estate pastor. We were chatting about specific discipleship needs on estates. He suggested that a lot of the discipleship points we think are important to estates are actually important for everyone. However, he suggested it might be that middle class Christianity does not have a big emphasis on discipleship. Is it possible that there is not a lot of discipleship happening in middle class Christisnity? I don't know, I'm merely asking the question.

I havn't tested this theory yet.
But wouldn't it be good if council
estate Christianity could up the ante in terms of discipleship. What if we could develop our discipleship to the point that middle class Christianity was asking if they could benefit from our discipleship?

That would be a good thing right?
