    Abstract

    This chapter explores everyday urban and transnational spiritualities, with a particular focus on religious and spiritual practices, objects and spaces among Brazilian and Vietnamese migrants in London. It extends research on transnational religion in its attention to relationships between the domestic and the urban as sites of religious and spiritual experience, both of which are mediated by transnational connections. The chapter develops the idea of the migrant home in the city as a site of connection between domestic, urban, transnational and spiritual realms. It considers the ways in which spiritual objects and practices are present in workplaces and those that travel with migrants on their journeys around the city. The chapter argues that migrants' everyday spiritual practices not only contribute to understandings of transnational religion, but also articulate broader debates within geographies of home and migration, including what home is and where it might be located.
