Over the past few months, I’ve given a few talks / papers that draw out the key implications of my recent research for three very different audiences:
- Voluntary sector audience – Joining in or Going it alone? Charismatic-Evangelical Churches and the Wider Voluntary Sector. This was presented at the NCVO / Voluntary Sector Studies Studies Network Research Conference last September.
- Multi-disciplinary academic audience – Inter-Disciplinary Research with Charismatic-Evangelical Urban Churches. This was presented at the University of Chester’s Humanities Research Symposium in May. It reflects on the challenges and opportunities inherent in inter-disciplinary research.
- Charismatic-evangelical audience – Last weekend, I attended Westminster Theological Centre’s Kingdom Theology Conference and presented a paper called Transforming Communities: Theological Reflections on Charismatic-Evangelical Urban Practice. As well as summarising the key findings of my research, the paper makes an appeal for a greater charismatic and evangelical engagement with Practical Theology.
More to follow over the next few months, including papers at:
- The Urban Theology Unit’s Institute for Contextual and Urban Theology (July)
- Ecclesiology and Ethnography Symposium (September)
