Regional Convention Stat. from the UK
More attendants than attendees. Like 2 attendants for each door. The foyer areas between the entrances had like 20 attendants.
Rub a Dub - "From what I have heard to cut down on expenses, they will not be setting up baptism pools any longer but baptismal candidates will be asked to pray and then take a shower."
Well half a stat this time.
Second of the Cardiff conventions and I don't have the attendance stats but likely 3,500/4,000 like last weekend. But I do know that 11 were baptised - so 1 more than last weekend.
There was a second assembly in Cardiff this last weekend. 3rd - 5th August 2018 for the Welsh Speaking Witnesses.
In Liverpool same weekend on the Sunday the attendance 8625 with 40 baptised.
Convention coming up at Excel in London's Dockland this Weekend, and I believe the following Weekend.
Stats from those will be interesting, if anyone is going.
