How the media generally portrays what people think about Jesus and the Church can often leave us feeling downcast and apprehensive about sharing our faith because ‘do people really want to hear it anyway?’
The Talking Jesus research reveals a very different picture altogether of how the general public in England view Jesus, Christianity, and the Church.
Having a look at these statistics will give you the confidence to recognise that you are the right person, in the right place to be taking Jesus and sharing your faith. Two-thirds of non-Christian adults in England say that they already know a practicing Christian, and that person is usually either a friend or a family member.
The research also revealed that non-Christians overwhelmingly described the Christian they know as being friendly, caring, good-humoured and generous. This means that people view Christians positively, despite what the media wants us to think.
The rest of the Talking Jesus research will continue to encourage you, to have conversations with the people in your world about your faith.
