Church of England Identity Drops

Friday, September 14th, 2018

Since 2002, the proportion of Britons who identify as Church of England has more than halved, falling from 31 per cent to 14 per cent.

Data from the National Centre for Social Research says the sharpest decline happened among 45 to 54-year-olds – 35 per cent in 2002 compared with eleven per cent in 2017.

The proportion of people who describe themselves as Roman Catholic, belonging to “other Christian affiliations” and “of non-Christian faiths” have remained fairly stable.

The survey also found that fifty two per cent of people now say they have no religion, compared with 41% in 2002, and men are more inclined to say they follow no religion than women -57 per cent compared with 48 per cent.
