Almost half of UK churches have fewer than 5 young people aged under 16 years

Is your church experiencing a gap in effectively reaching young people?

A recent survey of 11,700 churches discovered that nearly half (48%) have fewer than 5 under 16 year-olds*. Throughout Elim, there are a significant number of churches facing the same challenge. They either have no young people or no active youth work taking place. Is your church in this position?
