Faiths in Britain

The major religion in Britain is Christianity, and predominantly Anglicanism (Church of England).  In reality, however, only a small proportion of Britons regularly go to church, and the number of people with no religion is growing. Britain is a very multicultural society, so a wide range of world religions are also practised in the UK.
