Typical church now has just 27 people turning up to worship

From The Daily Mail-

A typical Anglican congregation numbered just 27 worshippers last year, figures revealed yesterday.

They showed that over a decade congregations fell by 15 per cent, church marriages by a third, and that fewer than one in ten babies were baptised.

According to estimates highlighted by the Church of England, a typical church staged just one white wedding in 2018.

But Church leaders said that Anglicanism is booming online and that CofE prayer apps were used more than five million times during last year, while its prayers and sermons are now receiving 3.6million clicks every month.
