New research project wants to hear the experience of converts to Christianity
The Hyphen Project at The University of Birmingham is aiming to explore the ways that converts to Christianity balance their religious and cultural identities during times of major life change. The purpose is to create a resource to help churches better understand and support their congregations.
The team want to hear about challenges and conflicts, as well as good experiences and examples of great support.
They are looking to hear from Christians who meet the following requirements:
Have either belonged to or identified with another faith
Have gone through a major life change since coming to faith in Christ (e.g. marriage, gained a child, death of a loved one etc.)
Identify as minority ethnic (including ‘mixed race’ and ‘white minorities’)
Are over 18 years old and based in the UK.
