Why People Leave Church

In our current culture of pluralism and individuality, a fair amount of controversy surrounds church, who leaves and why they leave.

Pew Research Center survey found that one in every two self-identified Christian believers who don’t attend church say that they “practice their faith in other ways.”

In the same survey, over half also said their absence was because they hadn’t found “a church or house of worship they liked.”

About 48 percent cited “not enough time” as their reason for not going to church.
