Quick Facts on Churches in Portland Maine
  • Three strengths are positive predictors of growth — Caring for Children and Youth, Welcoming New People, and Participating in the Congregation.


  • 39% of fast-growing Presbyterian churches have fewer than 200 in worship. Small congregations grow, too!

  • Want to purchase a cup of coffee? That'll cost you three Our Fathers. Want a Coca-Cola? Five Hail Marys and a Glory Be. A Cappuccino? Four Our Fathers. Holy Spirit Church in Zagreb, Croatia, has opened a "prayer cafe" in the parish hall. Said Salesian Father Damir Stojic, "A lot of kids used to head for neighboring cafes after Mass here. We came up with this scheme for persuading them to hang out at the church instead." Other parishioners have taken to the idea as well.


  • New people are less involved in their congregations than those who have been there for longer.

Quotes

Pale rain over the dwindling harbour And over the sea wet church the size of a snail With its horns through mist and the castle Brown as owls.   -Thomas, Dylan Marlais

I must be mad, or very tired, When the curve of a blue bay beyond a railroad track Is shrill and sweet to me like the sudden springing of a tune, And the sight of a white church above thin trees in a city square Amazes my eyes as though it were the Parthenon.  -Lowell, Amy

In Church your grandsire cut his throat; To do the job too long he tarried, He should have had my hearty vote, To cut his throat before he married.   -Swift, Jonathan

The existence of St Sophia is atmospheric; that of St Peter's, overpowering, imminently substantial.One is a church to God; the other a salon for his agents.One is consecrated to reality, the other to illusion. St Sophia, in fact, is large, and St Peter's is vilely, tragically small.  -Byron, Robert

It comes equally to us all, and makes us all equal when it comes. The ashes of an oak in the chimney are no epitaph of that oak, to tell me how high or how large that was; it tells me not what flocks it sheltered while it stood, nor what men it hurt when it fell?and when a whirlwind hathblownthedustofthechurchyard intothe church, and the man sweeps out the dust of the church into the churchyard, who will undertake to sift those dusts again, and to pronounce,This is the Patrician, this the noble flower, and this the yeomanly, this the Plebeian bran.  -Donne,John

The perfect church service,would be one we were almost unaware of. Our attention would have been on God.  C.S Lewis

A high church for the true mediocre.  -Mailer, Norman Kingsley
