Theology

The Practical Theology group includes researchers who gather empirical data using qualitative and quantitative methods, and who analyse it using theological, psychological and social constructs. A unifying focus is that our research aims to increase understanding of faith communities, whether this is in relation to their theology, their worship, or the way in which they prepare people for ministry. The results of our research not only add to academic understanding, but are also of practical use to churches and to society at large.
