LDS Church shows real growth in the UK

Post by I Have Questions »

That's real growth in expenses, not membership

From the public filing for year ending December 2022

Total Church Membership
2022 - 186,933 (885 convert baptisms)
2021 - 186,803

Stakes
2022 - 44 (275 wards, 42 branches)
2021 - 45 (279 wards, 40 branches)

Missionary program admin costs
2022 - £9,427,000 (total missionary expenditure including mission president stipends and expenses £11,023,000)
2021 - £7,790,000 (total missionary expenditure including mission president stipends and expenses £8,572,000)

Expenditure excluding exceptional items
2022 - £52,762,000
2021 - £44,979,000

Member donations
2022 - £37,845,000 (tithing income decreased by £250,000)
2021 - £37,699,000

None of the humanitarian funds donated (2022 - £906,000) have been expended directly in the UK. Instead, the Church pulled up £6.7 million into its "we can do whatever we like with it" central pot.
