The official languages of Jersey are English and French, and both languages are widely spoken on the island. English is the language of administration and commerce, while French has historical significance as Jersey was once part of the Duchy of Normandy. The local language, Jersey French, also known as Jèrriais, is a variety of Norman French and is still spoken by a small number of people on the island. However, English is the primary language spoken by the majority of the population, and it is the language of instruction in schools.
Christianity is the largest religion in Jersey, with the majority of the population identifying as Anglican, Catholic, or Methodist. Other Christian denominations, such as Baptists and Jehovah's Witnesses, are also present on the island but represent a much smaller percentage of the population. Jersey also has a small Jewish community and a growing Muslim community. However, the largest religious group in Jersey is those who identify as having no religion, with this group representing around 45% of the population.
