A day conference is taking place this Friday based on a new academic study into growth and decline in the Anglican Communion over recent decades. The conference, at the University of Roehampton in southern England, follows the recent publication of a new book, “Growth and Decline in the Anglican Communion – 1980 to the Present.” The publication was prepared by an international team of researchers based across five continents; the study provides a global overview of Anglicanism alongside twelve detailed case studies of Anglican churches in Australia, Congo, England, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, South America, South India, South Korea, and the US. It was edited by the Revd Dr David Goodhew, director of ministerial practice at Cranmer Hall, part of St John's College at Durham University.
