Congregations have grown in more than half the country's evangelical churches, according to a survey published by the Evangelical Alliance UK yesterday.

The alliance, which seeks to reflect the views of a million churchgoers from more than 12 denominations surveyed 3,000 member churches and found that 53 per cent had grown in congregation size in the past year. Just over a third remained static, while 12 per cent lost members. Half of the churches reported a rise in child attendance, with one third saying there had been a rise in church-going among youth in the past year.
