For the first time ever, a minority of England and Wales consider themselves Christian, the country’s official religion.

From 2011 to 2021, Christians went from 59.3% to 46.2% of the population.

Over the same time period, those that said they had no religion went from 25% to 37% of the population.

The Muslim population also grew from 4.9% to 6.5%, and the Hindu population grew from .2% to 1.7%.

Anglican Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrell said the new census results were “not a great surprise” and “throws down a challenge to us not only to trust that God will build his kingdom on Earth but also to play our part in making Christ known.”

“We have left behind the era when many people almost automatically identified as Christian, but other surveys consistently show how the same people still seek spiritual truth and wisdom and a set of values to live by.” 

Pray for the faith!

🙏
