Research at the Centre for Post-Christendom Studies is focused on post-Christendom in the areas of theology, history, culture, and practice. In theology, topics include the relationship between the Church and State, the role of theology in relation to other disciplines in the contexts of post-Christendom, and the way post-Christendom impacts theological discourse. Historical topics are primarily geared towards the reasons behind — and responses to — the disappearance and decline of Christian communities around the world. In the area of culture, topics include the effects of post-Christendom on the Church and society and changing attitudes towards the Christian faith and its adherents as they are portrayed in arts and media. Practically, the Centre for Post-Christendom Studies strives to be a resource and an aid for the church by addressing the challenges for the Church and mission arising from the contexts of post-Christendom and considering the various solutions offered by emerging forms of doing church.
