When did churches start to appear more empty than full - and why? The very physicality of largely empty churches and chapels in Britain plays a powerful role in popular perceptions of religion. Empty churches are frequently cited in the media as evidence of large scale religious decline.;The Empty Church Revisited presents a systematic account of British churchgoing patterns since the 19th century, uncovering the factors and the statistics behind the considerable process of decline in church attendance. Dispelling as myth the commonly held views that the process of secularization in British culture has led to the decline in churchgoing and resulted in the predominantly empty churches of today, Robin Gill points to physical factors, economics and issues of social space to shed new light on the origins of empty churches.;This thoroughly updated edition of Gill's earlier work, The Myth of the Empty Church, presents new data throughout to explore afresh the paradox of church building activity in a context of decline, the patterns of urbanization followed by sub-urbanization affecting churches, changes in patterns of worship, and changes within the sociology of religion since the 1990s.

Dispelling as myth the commonly held views that the process of secularization in British culture has led to the decline in churchgoing and resulted in the predominantly empty churches of today, Gill points to physical factors, economics and issues of social space to shed new light on the origins of empty churches."--BOOK JACKET.
