Rate of decline in Sunday attendance little changed from recent years

From The Cafe-

The 2013 statistical totals for the Episcopal Church are now posted at the Research and Statistics site and the General Convention site.

The table, Episcopal Domestic Fast Facts Trends: 2009-2013 shows a -2.6% change 2012-2013 in average Sunday attendance (ASA), little different from the -2.7% change 2011-2012.

Median ASA across all domestic congregation was 61 in 2013. In 2009 the median 66 and has fallen or held steady each year since. 60% of congregations in 2013 had an ASA of 200 or less. This percentage has varied very little over the last five years.

Though pledge and plate grew 0.8 percent 2012-2013, the U.S. inflation rate was 1.5 percent in 2013.
