Prayer List: Unreligious Outnumber Christians in the UK

The New York Times reports on the decline of Christianity in the United Kingdom: “For Christian believers, the most alarming news came in recent days in a report based on a British Social Attitudes survey, which concluded that, for the first time, the number of people in England and Wales identifying themselves as having no religious affiliation (49 percent) exceeded those who cleaved to Christianity (44 percent).”

There is also a growing number of unreached people groups in the United Kingdom because of immigration. According to the Joshua Project, these 32 people groups represent 4,758,000 people.
