The Kendal Project: A Spiritual Revolution

Between October 2000 and June 2002, a University of Lancaster study of the population of Kendal, a town near the Lakes District in the UK, revealed some fascinating trends in modern society's approach to, and practice of, religion and spirituality. Known as the Kendal Project, the study looked at the prevalence of regular congregational church attendance compared with the popularity of spirituality in the holistic domain. It showed that church attendance trending steadily downwards and uptake of spirituality in the holistic domain, increasing. This programme explores the scope and methodology of the Kendal Project, its findings and conclusions about modern society, religion and spirituality and examines implications and explanations of changing trends. We hear reflections from a range of people, including University of Lancaster academics involved in the Kendal project, a member of the clergy, and a modern day practising witch. It is an excellent learning resource at senior secondary and higher education levels for students of sociology, religion, values and ethics.
