Christians make up 2.1 billion people globally – around a third of the world’s population. And the Church is growing – at a rate of around 70,000 people a day worldwide. In this country, the most recent Census figures (2011) showed that Christianity remains the biggest religion in England and that almost 60 per cent of people identify themselves as Christians.
