NEW RESEARCH released by the Evangelical Alliance has highlighted that going to church is good for your physical and spiritual health.
More than nine out of 10 evangelicals had been in good health during the past year – that's compared to just three quarters of all English adults. Even more said that Christians should lead healthy lifestyles to look after their God-given bodies.
Two thirds of evangelical Christians surveyed in late 2015 said their church offers practical support for those facing health issues.
The research, published exclusively in the Alliance's idea magazine, demonstrates the vital role both personal belief and being part of a church community can play.
The Evangelical Alliance has released a ten-step guide for churches to help their congregation live healthier lives.
From swapping biscuits for fruit for the after-service snack, to taking the prayer meeting on patrol by walking around the neighbourhood, small changes can make a big difference.
