The world hit a new benchmark of 7 billion people just recently, and Australia has hit a population of 23 million. Our population has actually doubled since 1966 (11.5 million), and at that time 1 in 4 Aussies attended church (2.6 million). These days, with double the population, our church attendance has actually dwindled to less than 1 in 14 (1.6 million). \n\nLooking at the ABS religious statistics might give some false positives for Christian leaders, showing that while 61% of Australians tick the Christianity box, only around 1 in 10 of these regularly attend church. In our research, we gave Australians the option to select both spirituality and religion. The findings showed that Australians identifying with the Christian faith dropped from 6 in 10, to 4 in 10. Overall, only 9% were actively practising and regularly attending a place of worship.
