Toronto, Dec. 14, 1978
For immediate release
For the first time since 1950, total membership of the Anglican Church has dipped below the one million mark. The statistics are submitted by Dioceses across the country each year to the National Office of the Church in Toronto. Those for 1977 were released last week by the Church's national treasurer, John R. Ligertwood. They show the total membership reported on Parish rolls was down to 997,371 from 1,008,929 in 1976.
However, giving for the year was up. Total parish income at the local level was $64.8 million as compared to $58.2 million in 1976. The Church's 30 Dioceses reported a total income of $14.1 million, an increase of almost $1 million. The General Synod of the Church received just over $3 million from the Dioceses for its work in Canada and overseas.
Church School enrollment, which has been dropping drastically (eg. a decrease of 2,400 between 1975 and 1976) went down only about 600 in the year. However, the number of teachers reported was up from 12,900 to 13,500. The 93,400 children are in 31 fewer Sunday Schools than in 1976.
The number of clergy remained fairly constant, though the total new ordinations increased slightly, 154 Deacons and Priests compared to 142 in the previous year. There were 21 additional Clergy and 1 more Bishop, serving in 3,072 congregations, 147 less than in 1976.
The total number of Baptisms (24,400) and Confirmations (18,100) was a minimal decrease, while the number of persons received into the Anglican Church from other Communions increased slightly to 556. Marriages dropped by 700, and there were 100 more funerals.
Mr. Ligertwood's report to the Bishops and members of the Administration and Finance Committee contains only "raw figures," it makes no attempt to analyze the statistics or predict trends.

TORONTO (February 13, 1997) -- All 30 dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada have met or exceeded amounts they had agreed to pay in 1996 to help finance national ministry and mission.
Seven dioceses actually paid more to the apportionment, or program, part of the budget than they had originally committed themselves to. Additional payments were made by the dioceses of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, Huron, Niagara, Ontario, Toronto and Edmonton.
The apportionment budget reached a high of $8.4 million in 1992 but fell to $7.5 million in 1995. In that year, several dioceses fell short of paying the amounts they had previously agreed to.
A series of reductions through the early 1990s saw General Synod mission support to overseas and Northern churches fall by up to 30 per cent, and a number of national staff positions were eliminated.
For 1996, diocese had agreed to make contributions totalling $7.1 million. However, the additional contributions of $188,000 bring total support to $7.3 million.
The strong support from dioceses during the 1996 budget year represents "a significant increase in total revenue", said Archdeacon Jim Boyles, general secretary of General Synod, "and it means that our church's witness will be continued and extended in 1997".
The additional payments will help to eliminate the last of a deficit accumulated in earlier years. This mean that the church is heading into 1997 without a deficit, Archdeacon Boyles explained. He added that a balanced budget is forecast for 1997.
Year-end financial results were also positive for the Primate's Fund, the Anglican Appeal and the Anglican Journal.
Donations from parishes and individuals during 1996 exceeded the target of $2.45 million which had been set by the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund. PWRDF's revenues consists of such donations and grants from government.
The Anglican Appeal, which supports work in Northern dioceses and overseas mission raised a net amount of $503,000 in 1996, a slight decrease from the previous year when it raised $505,000. The Appeal's net revenue represents its contribution to General Synod after administration costs and dioceses' share of donations have been paid.
The Anglican Journal, which runs its own appeal, raised $230,000, surpassing its target of $210,000.
