Listen to a talk with Francesca E. S. Montemaggi, presenting findings from an ethnography in a Christian evangelical church in Wales, UK. In the pluralistic environment of Western liberal democracies, a strand of North American Christian evangelicalism has been promoting successful a model of church-doing that seeks to respond to contemporary diversity of life-styles. The example of church-doing proposed by US Pastor Rick Warren focuses on community. In the UK, Christians seeking to revive contemporary Christianity have been receptive to this ‘vision’. This talk  maintains that this model operates a shift from doctrine to community. The church in the study began with the vision of a church as a faith-driven community centre. The aim was to create a welcoming place where everybody could feel accepted.
