In addition to our library, archive, and teaching, the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide also engages in projects that seek to enrich our understanding of global Christianity.
CCCW was delighted to work with Tearfund on a temporary research project on how local churches have responded to protracted crises. Seven countries were studied – Myanmar, Burundi, Syria, Lebanon, the Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and South Sudan, and included in-person ethnographic fieldwork in South Sudan and Lebanon. This resulted in the publication: Marjorie Gourlay, Muthuraj Swamy and Madleina Daehnhardt. How the church contributes to well-being in conflict-affected fragile states: Voices from the local church Cambridge/Teddington: Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide and Tearfund, 2019.
