Church attendance has been propped up by immigrants, says study | World news | The Guardian

Mass migration of Christians to Britain from countries such as Poland and Romania is among the factors helping to stem the decline in church attendance, according to new figures.

The latest analysis of church membership shows a growth in black-led churches and the mainstream churches' so-called "fresh expressions" movement have also helped curb the rate of decline.

The fall in church membership previously anticipated for 2020 will now not be evident until 2025, according to the research by Peter Brierley, whose second edition of UK Church Statistics, is due to be published soon.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
