I was invited to this event on 11th January at the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity, where The Evangelical Alliance (EAUK) launched the results of groundbreaking research into the beliefs, attitudes and behaviours of evangelical Christians in the UK.

Dubbed 21st Century Evangelicals, the survey is made up of responses from more than 17,000 people who completed questionnaires at Christian festivals throughout 2010.  That's a huge undertaking, and it's a must read for anyone interested in evangelicals.

Apparently it is the  first in a series of reports which will paint a comprehensive and detailed picture of evangelicals in the UK at the beginning of the 21st century.  You can download the survey publication and results for free here.  P19 is very interesting detailing how younger Christians are like other evangelicals, but also how they markedly differ from previous generations.
