This FACT indicates the number of churches in each Australian capital city. Data was obtained from the Yellow Pages online listing directory in 2018, with a church being defined as a place of worship for those religions that base their beliefs upon the teachings of Christ. The churches where faith in Christ's teachings are observed include; Anglican, Assemblies of God, Baptist, Catholic, Christian, Churches of Christ, Congregational, Eastern Orthodox, Jehovah's Witnesses, Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Reformed Church, and the Uniting Church. As the data was obtained from the Yellow Pages online listing directory it should be taken as a general guide to numbers rather than a definitive set of statistics. The hard numbers provide interesting scope for discussion. Australia's two largest cities - Sydney and Melbourne, had the most places of worship, with 1195 and 1019 respectively. Adelaide, known as 'the city of churches', came in 4th, at 376. The city with the least number of churches was Darwin, at 45.
