    Anglicans are reporting better-than-expected numbers for 2020. The Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) kept the same number of congregations from 2019 to 2020 (972) and only saw slight declines in membership and attendance.

    Saw this posted on an ACNA facebook group. At least one church is claiming they did not file numbers in time and Covid was already scaring people in January and February. All in all this was uplifting.

    i suppose this is in the context of Covid 2020, and the widespread declines/defections among other denominations?

    I have no clue how other denominations fared last year. They say in the article that some Methodist churches are looking at joining the ACNA. I say good if only they are re ordained and schooled in liturgy.
