Post-Christian Britain
So the media is reporting a new survey which tell us what we've known for ages: the church in Britain is in decline and according to the piece in The Telegraph:
"Researchers describe a large proportion of the country as the “fuzzy faithful” who have a vague belief in God but do not necessarily belong to a particular denomination or attend services".

The article ends with the C of E spokesperson trying to talk things up.
And there are some signs of life and resurrection.
But I think it's a continuing call for those of us within the church to continue the journey of faithfulness, reimagining and bold experimenting, and to work out what a marginalised post-christendom church looks like in 21st Century Britain.
And to think seriously about where connecting points for faith-sharing begin, without pre-supposing prior knowledge.
