Going or not going to Church

Under the cheesy headlines of 'Mass Apathy' and 'O Come All Ye Faithful?' the BBC has been covering the results of the recent survey which showed that a lot of people who might go to church actually don't, and 26 million adults claim to be Christian.

There will no doubt be lots of scrutiny as to how to 'get them in', which I'm sure can yield some very telling lessons for those of us who attend (and in my case run) public worship. Maybe if we were more concerned about being Christian the other 166 or 167 hours of the week, more people would join us for the Sunday gathering.
