Welcome to the statistics pages. Here, you will be able to find key statistics and trends in relation to church growth and decline of the Church of England. Data has been provided by the Research and Statistics Unit of the Archbishops' Council. Please use the navigation menu on the left of this page to view statistics on: age profile, parish growth and decline, occasional offices (baptisms, marriages and funerals) and cathedrals.
The two interactive graphs below show historic and recent church attendance trends through a number of different methods.
It should be noted that every 6 years a wholesale revision of Electoral Rolls takes place. This accounts for some of the fluctuations shown in the graph above.
