Abstract

Statistics and the people who interpret them both have a tendency to be depressing, especially if the statistics are about the Anglican Church and the person interpreting them is a former archbishop of Canterbury. In November 2013 Lord Carey of Clifton, archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002, warned in public comment that the Church of England was in crisis.
Speaking of Church leaders, including himself, he insisted that 'we ought to be ashamed of ourselves' for lack of action. His comments were widely reported in the British press, accompanied by a slew of commentary and opinion pieces on the Church's decline.
