Community Religions Project

Researching religious plurality in England's industrial heartland

Since 1976, the Community Religions Project has conducted empirical research on religion in the cities of Leeds and Bradford and beyond. In 2009 when the Plurelgion Network came into being, Professor Kim Knott directed this project on religious plurality and supervised student teamwork projects on the 'Religious Mapping of Leeds'. She is currently cooperating with CERES in the project Iconic Religion.

After her leave in 2012, the project has changed to focus on learning and teaching. Increasingly, the project's website will showcase all that is best in supporting undergraduate students and others to research religion in their local community. Much of the history of the Community Religions Project relates to changing patterns and trends in the study of religions. You can find out more about the history of the project by visiting the Research Archive. Learn more about this project here.
