Parish data: Statistics for Mission

These parish stats provide a summary of the Statistics for Mission returns as submitted by churches/parishes from 2006-2015, including a small amount of census and deprivation information to provide a clear picture of the reported patterns of activity in parishes and benefices.

How to use the data

The attendance and participation information they contain, though an important part of the life of churches, does not represent everything that churches do, but it is hoped that by displaying it clearly and conveniently this information can better inform the decisions that churches make about their mission and ministry. Census and deprivation information on these parish ‘dashboards’ comes from government figures mapped onto parish boundaries.
