Even as all of the major denominations seem to be oblivious to the ramifications of their downward slide toward apostasy on many long-held tenets of the Christian faith, the Anglican Church in England is attempting to reverse that trend by returning to a more conservative stance. The Telegraph, a London newspaper, reported earlier this week that the Church of England, mother church of the Anglican Communion, has seen attendance at its services plunge to record lows.
According to The Telegraph, official figures now place church attendance at a mere 1.4 percent of the population. It also noted that in 2014, the overall average attendance at Sunday services decreased by 22,000 to an average of just under 765,000. The trends mirror similar figures among the major denominations that came about because of the Reformation. Presbyterian and Methodist denominations, for example, have embraced same-sex marriage along with the Episcopal church, the American brand of Anglicanism. CONTINUE
