DENMARK – Church to close 14 churches in Copenhagen

The Copenhagen diocesan council decided to close 14 of its 119 churches. Theology Scientist believe that 200 churches in Denmark will be closed over the next ten years.

The People’s Church in Copenhagen has long struggled with declining membership and  poor economy, and during a meeting on Tuesday afternoon, the diocesan council decided that 14 churches have to lock the doors. This is the biggest cutback in the number of churches since the Reformation in 1536.
