Religious Faith in London: Non-believers

As previously reported by Urbs, London is the most religious region of Britain with three quarters of the population describing themselves as having a religious faith.

The biggest changes over the past decade have been the decline in Christianity to below 50% and the rise in non-believers. In 2006 16% said they had no religious faith. In 2014 that had climbed to 25%.

Non-believers are spread across the capital. The highest proportion is in Islington, but lack of religious belief is above 30% in most central boroughs.

Newham in the east has the fewest non-believers. The borough has one of the largest Muslim populations in the capital and a high proportion of Christians.
