Why People Don’t Go to Church

This book gives a unique perspective of the churches through the eyes of those who do not go

Essential reading for those who care about church life and mission in Australia. Released in August 2002, this book, using the Australian Community Survey, gives a unique perspective of the churches through the eyes of those who do not go.

Why People Don’t Go to Church reveals:

  • the importance of social influences on why people don’t go
  • the size of the cultural and religious gap between church attenders and those who do not go
  • the reactions of Australians on the times when they do go to church
  • the great need for vital churches and new forms of church to better connect with Australians
