Statistics for Mission Dashboards (up to 2017) by Parish
These parish Statistics for Mission dashboards aim to offer a clear summary of the reported patterns of church attendance and participation in parishes.
The information they contain, though an important part of the lives of churches, does not of course cover everything that churches do; we hope that by displaying it clearly and conveniently this information can better inform the decisions that churches make about their mission and ministry.
These parish dashboards contain a summary of the Statistics for Mission (i.e. attendance and participation) returns as submitted by churches/parishes from 2008-2017. Missing or late returns may lead to gaps and (in the case of multiple church parishes) unusual-looking fluctuations.
As far as possible, the dashboard for each parish contains information relating to the churches currently in the parish. Where parish structures have changed, we have tried to reflect the current structure. Dashboard file names contain the deanery name, parish code, and parish name.
Additionally, the dashboards include a small amount of census and deprivation information, taken from government figures mapped onto parish boundaries. For some parishes, including those in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, census and deprivation information is not available. Census and deprivation statistics contain much more detail than shown on the dashboards; further information can be found online by following the links provided.
The Church of England Research and Statistics team are keen to correct erroneous figures wherever possible. If you believe that incorrect information has been submitted on behalf of your parish, please get in touch via email or see the guidance here: https://www.churchofengland.org/more/policy-and-thinking/research-and-statistics/correcting-your-data.
Some errors will be easy to fix; in other cases, further information may be required and you may be asked to complete the relevant sections of a Statistics for Mission return. Any corrections will be incorporated into the next annual update of these dashboards.
The bulk of the work in creating these dashboards has been done by the churches who report the information and the dioceses who encourage this reporting. It is then the hard work from colleagues in the Church of England Research and Statistics team who then produce these dashboards that the Diocese of Ely then chooses to share through it’s website.

If your parish is not visible, it might mean that it has failed to submit any information, or there is an issue that needs to be resolved. In either case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to investigate the matter.
