One in ten people in the UK attends church every week and one in seven goes monthly, according to new research.

The Tearfund research project puts the UK among Europe's four least observant countries. 53% of Britons identified themselves as “Christian” compared with almost three quarters in the 2001 Census.

The good news?

The research identified nearly that three million more people would attend regularly if given the right invitation.
