Church of England loses more than 100,000 worshipers in a decade

From The Independent-

The Church of England has lost more than 100,000 worshippers in the last decade, new figures have shown.

Attendance has now reached a nadir, having fallen an average of one per cent every year and 11 per cent since 2005.

However, Christmas and Easter see a spike in the numbers of people going to church.

It continues a trend which has seen CofE attendance, and people who identify as Anglican, drop consistently since the 1960s.

Attendance at Sunday services in 2015 was 752,460, compared to 875,000 in 2005, a fall of 12 per cent in ten years.
