Church leaders can take heart from a recent survey showing that Australian Christians were back in church or tuning into online services last year, after a 6% decline in 2020.
Attendance returned to pre-Covid levels, according to the latest National Church Life Survey.
The annual online survey tracks the views of the wider Australian community on religious, spiritual and social issues.
It asked 60 questions to around 1,200 people of different ages, genders and locations.
They covered church attendance and attitudes to Christianity and religion as well as social topics, mental health and civic contributions.
The survey also included a study into family violence.
Eternity News reports it’s been extended until the end of February when more findings are expected to be released.
