Our aim in this paper is to explore how religious communities form and stabilise attachments to their worshippers in the context of the significant demographic, economic and social flux that Bauman (2000) calls liquid modernity. The last decade has seen renewed interest in the shaping of religious community and questions of religious identification and belonging, particularly in the United States (Edwards, 2008; Emerson and Smith, 2000; Emerson and Woo, 2006; Madsen, 2009; Marti, 2005; Orsi, 2005). Much of this work addresses questions of identity, race and diversity, but there are also significant studies of the way these elements intersect with the material and spatial dimensions of urban life (Eade and Garbin, 2006, 2007; Kershen, 2005; Naylor and Ryan, 2002; Watson, 2009).20116102
