The Spirit of Things Unseen: research report

To mark the launch of Things Unseen, CTVC commissioned a piece of original research from the think tank Theos to examine patters of spiritual belief in Britain.

The results showed that spiritual beliefs are not the preserve of the ‘religious’, but are also found among a substantial proportion of those who do not define themselves as religious. For example


* more than half of all people believe that spiritual forces have some influence in the world

* over three-quarters of all adults say that “there are things in life that we simply cannot explain through science or any other means”

* one in six of the population say that they or someone they know has experienced a miracle


In all, the research confirmed that the British have not become a nation of atheists or materialists. A spiritual current runs as, if not more, powerfully through the nation than it once did.
