FCA and the numbers game

“The FCA claims that it has around 1,600 followers from 320 parishes around the country”

Church Times 10th July 2009, p3

That makes about 5 in each church… If some churches are filled with say 40 or 50 supporters, then that means there are an awful lot of the 320 churches with one (maybe a rabidly enthusiastic Curate). Not exactly a sweeping movement.

However, as one Archbishop once remarked:

“The Church of England is like a swimming pool – all the noise happens at the shallow end”
