The Bible has been used to count all things in Australia for centuries.
The count, known as the Good Faith estimate, was made in response to the census that took place in the late 1800s, and the Church of England’s Good Faith count began in the mid-1990s.
Today, it’s used to estimate the number and location of all Australian churches.
It’s based on how much churchgoers use their own language and customs to describe their worship, how often people congregate and how long they congregate.
The good faith estimate is also used to track the number, type and types of buildings used to house and minister to the congregation.
But the Good, the Church and the Holy have never been equal.
It’s about time we had a good faith count of Australia’s churches, says the founder of the Good faith estimate.
For years, the Goodfaith estimates had been made based on the census, but the Church in the UK has started a new census to provide a much more detailed count of churches.
“I would like to see the good faith estimates be based on a more scientific survey of the communities and locations, and then be more precise about what we know about the people who are congregating,” said Father John Erskine from St Bartholomew’s in Melbourne.
His good faith survey has a population of just over 1 million people, and he estimates that there are about 300 churches in Melbourne alone.

In his new census, the Anglican church in Australia will have a population greater than 500,000 people, while the United Church of Australia has just over 20,000 members.
It also has a very different way of worship.

“They are not in sync, they do not go together.”
Erskines good faith report is being carried out by a local parish priest.
The survey is based on interviews with people attending church services, a questionnaire that they fill out, and data from church publications, and will take around two weeks to complete.

He says that the good-faith estimate has never been the same for the United States, where there are more than 50,000 congregations, but that the number has changed over time.
There are many churches that do not have an estimated number of people, he said, but “I think we can use a reasonable standard as to what that number is to be, which is around 400,000.”
But even though he doesn’t have an exact number, he’s confident that we can count all the churches in the world.
That’s the reason why he started his Good Faith report, he says.
And with the Australian census coming in just a few weeks time, the good will count up.
Good faith count: how it works and how to count The Good Faith estimates are made by the GoodFaithEstimate.org site, which was created by Father John.
Using the survey, Father Eries estimates the population of the AnglicAN Church in Australia at around 500,099 people.
The United Church in Victoria has around 20,100 members.
If we assume that about 30 per cent of Anglicans attend church every Sunday, that would give the United Anglican Conference (UAC) an estimated population of around 400 of churches per cent.
I think it is a fair estimate to make for a large denomination, and we should have a good estimate of that, Father John says.
Father John has previously been involved in the Good Food and Healing initiative, which works to build relationships between the food and health sectors in the communities.
He has also been a member of the World Evangelical Fellowship, a fellowship of evangelical Christian leaders.
So Father John is familiar with the data on churches in many countries around the world, he explained.
However, the problem is that we don’t have a Good Faith figure in Australia because we don
