One thought on “People Choose and Attend Church For…

  1. I notice only 7% including “Location” as a factor, but I think that’s mostly a matter of perception.

    In my case, there’s a PNCC parish not too far away, which I’ve been to hundreds of times. There’s also a conservative Anglican parish that’s about three times as far away, which I’ve only been to a few times — but I’m sure that I would go there if the locations were reversed.
