About the event

Just how 'religious' is Britain? Is the UK a secular state? Multi-faith? Christian? What do such definitions mean both practically for the infrastructure of civil society and culturally in terms of how we view ourselves and others? Does having a formal label actually make a difference to what happens on the ground, to the experiences and activities of individuals and local communities?
