Drawing on examples from South Africa, Malaysia and the UK, four processes are identified. Religious practices enable migrants to travel, arrive and settle. They contribute to the formation of persons and identities, and to the bonding of congregations and communities. When religious practices are directed to public audiences, they constitute tactical initiatives for increased visibility, claims for recognition and the temporary sacralization of public space.
