About the Data: or this quarter’s report, we only included churches that provided data during the four weeks between January 4 and February 1, 2023. We received survey responses from 349 churches that ranged in size from under 100 to over 7,000 in physical attendance for worship gatherings. The average in-person attendance of these churches was 695 people.
