New Research Grant and Call for Applications
Project Funding for two Research Fellows "Megachurches and Social Engagement in London"
Dr Mark Cartledge and Dr Andrew Davies from the Centre for Pentecostal & Charismatic Studies at the University of Birmingham have been awarded a major Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant for a project entitled Megachurches and Social Engagement in London.
It is the first UK-funded research project of its kind looking at so-called ‘megachuches’, defined as attracting more than 2000 worshippers per week. In London there are ten such churches, with the largest gathering up to 15,000 people. The project aims to investigate the nature of their social engagement, interpreting the significance of this participation for public theology and elucidating the policy implications for religion and society. The Centre is now advertising for two full time Research Fellows to be appointed in order to work on this project.
