New Churches in the North East: a Research Conference

Leech hall, St Johns College, Durham

The conference concerns new churches in the North East of England, with a particular focus on minority ethnic communities, founded since 1980. Over 100 new churches have come into being since 1980, of which around 40 are rooted primarily in ethnic minority communities. The research has a bearing both on the religious life of the North East but also offers analysis of how the wider community is changing.
