New Black Majority Churches, especially aesthetics and growth; Faith, place & planning; 'Ordinary hermeneutics' - that is, the hermeneutical practices of ordinary Bible readers; interdisciplinary issues between theology and social science; use of ethnography in practical theology research; aspects of evangelicalism and fundamentalism; missiology; aspects of contemporary ecclesiology.

Andrew co-commissioned and co-supervised the project 'Traditions and Trajectories of British and Irish Practical Theology as evidence in the history of BIAPT's Journal'. This was a jointly funded project by BIAPT and Contact Pastoral Trust in 2019, leading to the production of a conference paper and journal article (forthcoming 2020), as well as an interactive timeline of the journal's development since the 1960s. This was prompted by the 25th anniversary of BIAPT. The co-comissioners and supervisors were Professor Nicola Slee and Dr Helen Cameron. Dr Stephen Roberts was the project researcher.
Andrew was the principal investigator for Signs of Wonder, a project that seeks to explore the theological significance of new black majority churches' iconography and aesthetic practices as seen in their distinctive signboards, banners, websites, media products and places of worship, with a view to informing better understanding of nBMCs cultural and theological worldviews. The project runs from Sept to Dec 2017.
Andrew was academic consultant on the Religious Meeting Places project in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. The project aims to improve understanding of faith group facilities in the borough, both in terms of current provision and usage, as well as looking at future faith facility needs in the borough. The project runs from Jan to Sept 2017.
Andrew was the principal investigator on the AHRC Faith and Place network, running from Sept '14 to Feb '16. The Faith and Place network sought to bring together faith group representatives, academics from multiple disciplines, planners, policy makers and civil society organisations. The purpose was to address the critical issues surrounding faith, place and planning, especially for migrant and post-migrant faith groups.
Andrew was the principal investigator on the research project Being Built Together which ran from 2011-2013. This project was in partnership with Transform Southwark and Churches Together in South London, as well as many other interested parties. The aim of the project was to investigate the demographics and ecclesiology of new black majority congregations in the London Borough of Southwark.
