europe

In geographical terms, Europe is a peninsula of Asia. We think of it as a separate continent only because of its unique cultural and religious heritage. This distinctive space has been created, in large part, through the outworking of the Christian story.

Today, Europe’s Christian heritage is eroding rapidly. There is plenty of religion, secularism and paganism, but far too little of the Gospel of grace.

In the sections below, the figures for 'Religion' are taken from Operation World. This provides a consistent measure which has been well-researched and with a defined methodology and definitions. In some cases, the figures have changed since Operation World was last published in 2010. Where we think there has been a significant change, we've noted this.
