This video indicates that 252 JW congregations have closed in Germany since 2015. Is this a legit statistic? What is causing this decline?
Between 11/2015 and 05/2016 they merged in Germany 48 congs into 24 congs. In this time they build 16 language-groups and 3 sign-language-groups. It looks like they cover up the reduction of regular congs with language-groups. In 2015 there 2201 congs in Germany - Yearbook 2015. The review from the 01/2007 till 05/2016: They merged 372 congs to 186 congs. They establish 137 new language-congs. They establish 6 new german congs. They establish 6 new sign-language congs. So the small 146 language-congs cover up the closing from 186 congs. http://www.jehovaszeugen.de/Amtsblatt.44.0.html
