Comments: Ministry Statistics 2012 published

Am I right in seeing that the projections towards 2022 show at best around another 1000 fewer stipendiary clergy by then and at worst about 1300/1400 fewer? Parishes and dioceses in England will have to face up to some further serious pastoral reorganisation and rethinking of stipendiary and non-stipendiary deployment if we are as a Church to continue to be part of God's mission in every community.
