Religiosity is on the decline in the UK.
Religious affiliation is on the decline in the UK
Belief in God (or gods) is on the decline in the UK
Most of all, affiliation with the Church of England is massively on the decline in the UK.
In this video I look at the latest statistics, alongside a pool of some other statistics from recent years, to discuss the trends of the last three decades and the implications for a country where around 25% of pupils are educated at archaic state-funded “faith schools”, where Anglican bishops get automatic places in our legislature and where the head of state is the supreme governor of a religious sect.
