2019 statistics reports

The membership & attendance reports with data submitted during the 2019 data collection can now be viewed and downloaded via the links below. 

Reports are listed by District and contain detailed circuit and church data. 

PLEASE NOTE: Churches were asked to only provide basic membership numbers and an estimated average attendance figure in the latest data collection. There is only one report per District.

If you notice any errors, please get in touch with the Web Support Officer.

Previous years' statistical data for individual churches can be accessed via the "Print Reports" function within each church record on the Methodist Online Suite.

Past District-wide reports are available in the Historic data archive section.

PLEASE NOTE: The annual reports show the membership and attendance of the societies reported as active (or “open”) at the time the statistics snapshot was recorded. This means that e.g. the total 2018 membership figure in the 2018 report differs from the total 2018 membership figure in the 2019 report as the more recent report does not include societies that have ceased to meet, become a class or merged during the latest statistical year. Two Districts (Birmingham and Northampton) have therefore actually experienced a decline in total membership while the 2019 report appears to show an increase. There will also be apparent discrepancies in various circuit totals for the same reason.
