A new MA thesis, supervised by CCGR staff, sheds light on student churchgoing. Chris Morgan has written a thesis entitled ‘A study into the gender ratio of student worshippers at King’s Church Durham, from 2009/10’. It analyses student churchgoing in a large new church in Durham, showing the large number of women students and how many come from arts subjects – and how the church has sought to achieve a more even gender balance. The thesis is of value for debates about gender and churchgoing and how students are connecting with faith in contemporary Britain.
