News in brief from church life in Denmark, August 2008
130,000 Danes go to church each week – some 2.4% of the population, according to a recent Gallup survey.
This figure has remained unchanged for 35 years, despite increasing secularisation and interest in other religions. And despite 82.1% of Danes being church members.
Peter Lüchau, who is researching at Copenhagen University into church attendance, told the Christian newspaper Udfordringen (Challenge) that attendance was not much better 100 years ago. At the start of the last century the figure was only 10%.
