Personally, I am quite excited for this. Climping Church lies within my study area. So, in addition to gaining the skill of church survey, I will be collecting data in support of this thesis project. The Arun river valley has been the focus of élite Christianity from an early period (at least by 770 AD). Churches are important foci for social activities as well as understanding ideologies and interaction between local and regional spheres of community.
