O Britannia, Quo vadis?

Whilst thou who commest by herein has then the glorious opportunity to lend thine ears to these glorious sounds of English choristers chanting the psalms, let thouest contemplate this:

2067: the end of British Christianity

Projections aren't predictions. But there's no denying that churches are in deep trouble


It’s often said that Britain’s church congregations are shrinking, but that doesn’t come close to expressing the scale of the disaster now facing Christianity in this country. Every ten years the census spells out the situation in detail: between 2001 and 2011 the number of Christians born in Britain fell by 5.3 million — about 10,000 a week. If that rate of decline continues, the mission of St Augustine to the English, together with that of the Irish saints to the Scots, will come to an end in 2067.

Until England returns to Walsingham...
And England didn't.
