The CofE - a sad influence
on: October 24, 2020, 10:07

This government has done so much to promote sectarian education.
https://humanism.org.uk/2020/10/23/revealed-number-of-pupils-attending-church-of-england-schools-more-than-entire-worshipping-community/?fbclid=IwAR1CM_WTAhxrxOZ9gySPy_EZWVES2FRlx-yQDT-X75f9RswIqjAQxMMltSU
According to the latest edition of the Church of England’s Statistics for Mission – which gives an overview of the size of the Church community as well as information about the number of people who attend services of different types – the CofE’s total ‘worshipping community’ is made up of 1.11 million people.

However, the most recent Government data on schools, pupils, and their characteristics shows that the number of children attending Church of England schools is 1.16 million, demonstrating that the level of influence the Church has over the education system is entirely disproportionate when compared to levels of adherence to its beliefs and practices in the wider community.
