Few Americans say their house of worship is open, but a quarter say their faith has grown amid pandemic

This survey was conducted between April 20-26 and queried 10,139 people through random sampling and weighted responses by gender, race, ethnicity, partisan affiliation, education and more. One-quarter of adults responded that their faith had become stronger as a result of the pandemic and within historically Black protestant contexts that number rises to 56%. The strengthening of faith however is recorded most among populations that are already religious to begin with. Women (30%) more than man (18%) report a similar strengthening; 91% of respondents who attend church monthly say their church is no longer meeting in person.
