THE MISSION OF THE ELIM CHURCH OF PENTECOST IN THE UK. by Lord Elorm Donkor — last modified 2008-12-09 14:30
African Pentecostal Christianity is one of the expressions within which the resurgence of religion is taking place in Europe. Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches, which are influenced by African culture started emerging in the U.K. in the 1960s and gained prominence from the 1990s. Today, they can be found in most cities and big towns of the U.K. The presence of these churches among African migrant communities in Europe is often explained as the migrants’ way of constructing identity, which enables them to cope with racism, alienation, marginalization and so on. The Elim Church of Pentecost is one of these churches, which is growing remarkably in the U.K. This study explores the reason for and the nature of the mission of this church in the U.K. The study shows how the enchantment for life in the traditional Akan culture and its quest for socio-psychological and spiritual power influenced and still influences the decisions of the Ghanaian Pentecostals to have a culturally relevant church in the U.K. It argues that an adequate understanding of the cosmology of the traditional culture of African Pentecostals is necessary for the explanation of their desire for spirit-filled and communal oriented churches in the Diaspora.

Linda van de Kamp by Linda van de Kamp — last modified 2015-02-16 15:46
Linda van de Kamp is a cultural anthropologist. Her research and teaching interests include the interplay between social transformations, local-global connections and cultural diversity in cities, and she currently focuses on how various cultural agents compete for and relate to space in urban renewal areas. From 2005 to 2010 Linda studied the growth of transnational religious movements in a city in transition, looking at the case of Brazilian Pentecostalism in Mozambique. From 2012-2014 her research engaged with the transnational circulation of (Afro-)Brazilian religious rituals and materials between Europe, Africa and Brazil. Linda’s work has been published and exhibited nationally and internationally. She was recently awarded a Veni grant (2015-2019) by the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme of the Netherlands’ Organisation of Scientific Research (NWO) for a project on ‘Yoga, Bingo and Prayer in Urban Renewal Areas’. Through anthropological field research in the north of Amsterdam, the project investigates how interaction between various groups of people influences urban renewal. She will analyze the dynamics between old and new inhabitants, entrepreneurs, artists, well fare workers, religious groups, housing corporations and authorities in dealing industrial heritage, collective rituals, and media and communication technology. Linda has also been on radio shows and newspaper stories have covered her work. Linda grew up in Brazil, returned to Brazil during her master studies, and conducted two years of fieldwork in Mozambique. As a result, she speaks fluent Portuguese (besides English and Dutch).
