Evangelicals opened 16 new places of worship every month in Spain in 2018, according to the latest annual report of the national Observatory of Religious Pluralism.



The official figures of this agency of the Spanish Ministry of Justice shows that there were 4,238 evangelical places of worship in December 2018, an increase of 197 new places compared to those registered in December 2017.



The government's statistics include Adventists and Anglicans under the category of evangelicalism, but the largest evangelicals denominations in Spain are Assemblies of God, Baptists, Brethren and independent churches.



The figures confirm the positive trend of growth of the last years.



 





The Roman Catholic Church still owns most worship places in Spain - 23,019.

Evangelicals represent the biggest percentage of temples among minority fatih groups: 58.5%.



Muslims follow, with 22.5% and a total of 1,632 places of worship; Jehovah's Witnesses, with 627 spaces, 8.27%; and the Orthodox, with 216 temples, 3%.
