Report on Research project at St Bart’s from 2015 - A Message of thanks from Leslie Fesenmyer:

Dear Colleagues, I wanted to share with you ‘African Pentecostal Churches in East London’, a research and briefing report based on research I carried out as part of a larger ESRC-funded project. 

Also, I’d like to say thank you again to those of you who spoke with me in the course of my research. Please do be in touch with any comments or questions.

If you would like a copy of the report then please contact the office.

Picturing the Parish The study day in September will look at St Matthew’s gospel through the lens of urban settings. We have been asked to take a series of photographs that express what it’s like to live in East Ham. If you’d like to get your camera out and have a go, that would be great, we can probably manage to print your photos in the office.
