Why not conduct a survey of your own church or congregation on an average Sunday? Better to not hold it at Easter, Christmas or on a Baptism Sunday? Draw an "Age/Sex Profile" for your church congregation of percentages of the whole in male/female and in five-year age brackets. Compare it to the "Age/Sex Profile" of your wider parish community. You will need to compile it yourself from Statistics Canada. You might be very surprised by the comparison.✞
