The paper focuses on how cities and transnational infrastructures transform each other by taking into account the significant role of religion in the creation of social, economic and spatial diversities in and across urban spaces. Examining the Luso-Pentecostal interactions between cities in Southern Africa, Brazil and in Europe, the analysis aims to demonstrate that religious practices occuring simultaneously at different localities play an important role in shaping megacities transnationally. Through travelling pastors, satellite connections and trans-continental cultural translations, Pentecostals create belonging that is located in distinct global landscapes.
