The number of Anglicans in Britain has collapsed by 50 per cent in under two decades, according to figures released today.
The latest British Social Attitudes survey’s data on religion show that the number of people in Britain who describe themselves as having no religion at all is also at its highest ever level.
More than half, 53 per cent, of the British public now describe themselves as having ‘no religion’.
This is up from 48 per cent in 2015.
Figures released earlier from the same survey showed that that religious people are becoming more socially liberal on issues like same sex relationships and abortion.
