how many times do you go to services

:rainbow1: Survey
I am doing a project for one of my school assignments. The assignment was to pick a question and ask it in a biased way and a non-biased way. By asking my question on an online chat room I am asking it in a non-biased way, making sure that where I ask the question does not persuade some ones answer one way or another. I also had to make shore that the answer I got was in number form so that at the end I could calculate my data, find the mean, median, mode, and range and then display it.
Please read the question and then answer in a number form about how many times you think that you go.

Question: About how many times a year do you go to synagogue/church/temple?
About: 0 times 1 time 3 times 6 times
9 times 12 times
18 times 24 times 27 times 30 times 33 times

Every Sunday I try to attend, and I also go to conferences, devotionals, potlucks, etc.

So the number is 52+ (it's hard to guesstimate the actual amount)


hey, dear. while not a Christian, i do attend Mass at a local Catholic church twice a month or so. i love the community there, and find the services beautiful and uplifting.

so about 20 times a year.

I typically try to go every Sunday, so that would be 52 times a year. However, I have to subtract about 5 to 10 times a year due to being sick, being out of town, weekend overtime at my job, etc. Because of this, I'd probably say about 42 times a year.

BTW, welcome to the forum :).

If it's any type of religious services, and includes private meditation, study, and rituals, then 60+ a year.

To Church ? I was married in one, and both my sons were baptised in one.........I think that covers the last thirty years of my life.....

Actually, I go into churches when there is no one else there; I don't enjoy congregations.


Prince of Dorkness!
I am a Buddhist, and we typically have at least two services a week at the Temple, so it is at least 100....................

we don't have services per-say.
For our faith the way we live is a form of worship.
faith and worship isn't something you only do at a church its the way you live.



I'm not sure which, if any, of the functions that I attend at my local Baha'i center would be considered "services", as we have no clergy. As far as the more formal events (Feasts and Holy Day celebrations): approx. 15, children's classes: approx. 30, and deepenings: approx. 45. So, I go to the Baha'i center approx. 90 times a year, total. I also attend meetings (study circles and devotionals) in the homes of individual Baha'is approx. 20 times a year. This makes a grand total of approx. 110 events, which might possibly be considered services, that I attend yearly.

:trampo: Thanks Sooooooooooo much for yor help:help:
i am now halfway done on this part of my project.
I had no idea that there was such a variety of ways people went to services and how
many times they could or did not go. :bunny:
With the data Ihave now, Ican see that most people go about...50 times a year. With all the responses I get, I am rounding to the nearest tens so I can get a better understanding on the graph. Thank you again.
Enjoy the holiday season.:grill: hope you have a relaxing one!!!


Not your average Mormon
I go to church most every Sunday for three hours. I try to go to the temple (which is not the same thing) once a month, but lately I've been kind of negligent about doing so.


As a Baha'i I attend Feasts every nineteen days so that's nineteen times a year. I think I missed one Feast.

We have a Sunday public program at the Baha'i Center and my son and I go to that so that's maybe forty eight times in the past year.

Also have a Ruhi study class that met last Summer and Fall so that's about twelve times.

Moved on
As long as the blood of my ancestors flows through me, I'm always at service. :) So does that count as once or as some huge number?


20 times a year on average I attend a Baha'I Faith devotional, and about 10 times I show up at a UU church, so about 30 in all.


Steel Magnolia
About 148 times a year.

I go to church services three times a week, and that is 156 times a year, I think, but I allowed a few days for being sick or out of town.
