A new survey which predicts the results of the Government Census reveals that the UK is still ostensibly a Christian Country with 56% of the British public professing to be Christian - this despite a campaign by the British Humanist Association which aims to prove otherwise.

According to a new poll conducted by ComRes, and commissioned by Premier Christian Media, 56% of the UK say that they are Christian, compared to 35% of the population who feel that they have no faith, and 8% who profess to be of another faith.

Peter Kerridge, CEO of Premier Christian Media commented on the recent polling, "Over half of the UK consider themselves to be a Christian - whether practising as such, or by having a close affiliation with Christian values and beliefs.

Premier Christian Media has spent the last 15 years reaching out to the UK, bringing the word of Christ into the lives of a diverse audience, not just through Radio, but Internet TV, social media and events."

ComRes interviewed 2,064 GB adults online between 11th and 13th March 2011. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of all GB adults. ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council.
