INCREASING NUMBERS OF executives working in "the City" — London's financial district—are turning to God support and guidance. As a result "business" is booming in the churches that offer lunchtime religious services in the district. A new Centre for Marketplace Theology opened in December. Its purpose is to serve as a kind of "biblical Christian Conscience" to the area's financiers.
