British Church Attendance Stabilizes After Years of Decline

The number of people attending Sunday services at Britain's Anglican churches is continuing to drop, but church officials say there are signs that the decline is starting to stabilize.

A spokesperson for the Church of England said Tuesday that average weekly attendance at the nation's 16,247 Anglican parishes was 1.1 million in 2011, representing a drop of just 0.3 percent from the previous year's figures.

The annual statistics reveal a substantial increase in attendance at the country's storied cathedrals: Christmas churchgoing rose by 14 percent, christenings were up 4.3 percent and adult baptisms were up 5 percent. The number of weddings was down 3.6 percent, to 51,880. ...

" ... church officials say there are signs that the decline is starting to stabilize."

This is gobbledegook for, "Please believe our bluff and come and join the CofE.

One thing is for sure that when the current generation of granmas and grandads die out this futile speculation of the Anglicans will prove to be just as baseless as their Liberal theology.

Real Christians will of course avoid this bluff because the religion of Anglican/Episcopalian is Liberalism the antiBiblical idolatry of the blind.

The only Biblical ceremony they seem to get right is sprinkle baptizing babies in the font.

The Anglican Church, is nothing more than Catholic-lite. This means it isn't a church. Turning these Anglican sepulchers into Methodist churches, wouldn't be any worse than leaving them an Anglican Church, but no doubt the British Methodist Church is no better than the American one, United Methodists at the End of the Mainline.

While I have been saving most of attacks for the Romish Church, q.v., Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF) and charismatic groups, q.v., Combating Charismatic Theology, The Anglican and its off-shoot the Methodist Church gives a poisonous inoculation against the true word of God, dulling the minds of their members.

"storied cathedrals"

You really don't want to end up with even one of these. It's like a "storied" church. We've reminisced and told stories about it just before it became a museum, hipster restaurant, pub, mosque or some Methodist folderol.

The parish collective kinda needs to maintain at least the faith of a mustard seed, otherwise it's merely another pretty building on the historic registry.
