Church of England could be 'extinct in 20 years' as elderly congregations die


As seen by the dailymail.co.uk:

Quote:
"The Church of England could be virtually extinct in 20 years as elderly members die, an Anglican leader has warned.
The average age of worshippers has risen to 61 as the Church has failed to attract younger followers, its National Assembly was told.
Church leaders now face a 'time bomb' as numbers 'fall through the floor' over the next decade.

Bleak projections for the future came during exchanges at the General Synod in York yesterday.
The Rev Dr Patrick Richmond, from Norwich, told members of the Church’s national assembly that they were facing a 'perfect storm' of ageing congregations and falling clergy numbers.
He said: 'The perfect storm we can see forming on the far horizon is the ageing congregations we have heard about - average age is 61 now, with many congregations above that.'
The Church was accused of 'impeccably' managing itself into failure."
