Church Growth and Decline in Contemporary London

02 May 2014, 10:00 - 16:00

Event Type: Colloquium

Description:

The Centre for Church Growth Research in partnership with the University of London’s Institute of Historical Research is organising an academic colloquium on church growth and decline in contemporary London. The one day colloquium will be held at the Institute’s rooms in Senate House, off Russell Square, London, on Friday 2 May 2014.

London has seen both dramatic church growth and significant secularisation in recent decades, developments intricately bound up with the wider development of London as a global city. This interdisciplinary conference offers an opportunity to study growth and decline across the city, as case studies of particular districts and churches and from a wider perspective – through the eyes of the renowned scholars David Martin and John Wolffe.
