Church attendance in Australia
Attendance at Anglican churches was down 5 percent, while attendance at Pentecostal and Methodist churches increased 20 percent in the same period.
The National Church Life Survey (NCLS) is the most comprehensive survey of church attenders in the world, and is timed to coincide with the Australia Bureau of Statistics national Census. The 1991 survey included 320,000 attenders in 6,000 congregations around Australia. The 1996 survey is even bigger! The NCLS is multi-denominational survey, which in 1996 included the Catholic Church in Australia. The sociology of religion takes a large step forward with a survey of this magnitude.
