Indiana Conference churches’ worship attendance trends

Posted: November 10, 2011 by efenster in Information

I recently analyzed our conference church statistics from 2010.  And discovered some interesting facts…

1. Nearly half our churches last year had fewer than 50 people in average weekly worship attendance.  Our media size was 52 people a week. 

2. Only 4% percent of our churches averaged more than 350 in weekly worship, yet a they accounted for one-third of our total worship attendance.

3. A third of our churches increased their worship attendance over the prior year.  There was a greater percentage of growing churches last year averaging between 50 and 350 than this same group had when compared to five years ago.  About the same percent of churches averaging under 50 and over 350 in weekly worship were growing last year as compared to five years ago.
