Christians ‘will be minority in Germany’

Published: 6 Sep 2013 09:18 CET |

Christians in Germany will become a minority in the next 20 years, a report claimed on Friday. Less than 50 percent of the population will belong to the Catholic and Protestant churches as congregations slowly die out.

Around 60 percent of the country is currently Christian with 24 million Catholics and 23 million Protestants. But that number is falling by 500,000 a year through deaths, the Welt newspaper reported on Friday.

The decline is expected to sharpen over the next decade as the bulk of church members are already elderly.

By 2033 churches will have less than 40 million members making Christianity a minority, the paper said.

And out of those that identify themselves as Protestants, the number of people who go to church regularly is far smaller with four percent of Protestants attending church on Good Friday, the paper reported.
