Church of England’s prayer apps used a record five million times, while attendance figures fall

People spent an average of eight minutes on the Daily Prayer app, one of various digital platforms offered by the Church of England in a bid to attract more believers.

The trend comes as church attendances continue to fall across the UK, with the average weekly number of adults and children going to Sunday service declining by 15% from 2008 to 2018.

There were 1.12 million regular worshippers at Church of England churches in 2018, its latest statistics show. 

The Daily Prayer app literally leads people through the CofE’s liturgy for Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer, with prayers readings etc so the length of time people would spend in a session would largely depend on how long they spend reading and praying their way through it.
