Christians Become Minority in England and Wales

Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

Less than half of the population in England and Wales identify as Christian according to the latest census data.  This marks the first time a nation’s official religion has fallen into the minority.  As of the day of the 2021 census, 46.2% of the population describe themselves as Christian, compared to 59.3% one decade ago.  The results of the census sparked conversation about the setup of the British state that has several Christian-oriented institutions but no longer a Christian majority in the population.
