As part of the 2013 Global Church Member Survey (GCMS), members were asked if family worship had been a habitual practice in their family of origin (Q3.4). Over two in five (42.6%) respondents said it had very much been a consistent practice and priority in their family, while another 22.7% indicated that it often was a regular practice, but not consistant. Less than one in five (18.8%) said family worship was only sometimes habitual practiced in their home, which meant only during certain time periods, while less than one in ten (8.7%) said they never had family worship at all.
