Abstract: This research outlines what were significant activities and who were significant people in the development of faith among Anglican and Protestant attenders. Most attenders became Christians before they were 20 years old. The kinds of activities and people varied significantly depending upon when they became Christian. If it was before 10 years of age, then Sunday School and parents are by far the most important influences. For those who become Christians between the ages of 10 and 20, parents are important, but other church structures, such as youth groups, are important. After the age of 20, then church ministers, adult small groups and other church workers are more important.
