The annual publication of Statistics for Mission provides the latest figures on attendance at Church of England services, and numbers of baptisms, marriages, and funerals.

Overall, in October 2015, an average of 960,000 people each week participated in a Church of England service; additionally, 165,000 people each week attended services for schools in a Church of England church.

This information is of great importance in highlighting the ministry offered in our diocese and the Church of England as a whole, and the online data entry system for 2016 Statistics for Mission is due to close on 16th April 2017.

If you have not already done so, please could you ensure that the return for your church has been submitted by this date. The online data entry system may be accessed here
