Orthodox churches see decline in numbers, little growth outside Europe
December 05, 2017
CWN Editor's Note: The world’s Orthodox population remains heavily concentrated in Europe, especially in Russia, reports L’Espresso. However in Russia—home to 100 million of the world’s 260 million Orthodox—only 6% attend services weekly.
Attendance rates at Orthodox services are low throughout Europe. But in Ethiopia, a healthy 78% of Orthodox believers go to church weekly.
