Church Development survey 3rd – 17th September

This year we are running the Church Development Survey in this church. It’s a quick, anonymous survey that we’re inviting everyone in the church to complete, to help us understand ourselves as a church and help us shape our prayers and our planning for the year ahead.

Scroll down to find out how to submit your thoughts.

The survey will help us answer three questions:

What should our focus be?

Your answers will help us decide about what we could be doing more of or less of as a church.

How do we like to express and grow our faith in this church?

Your answers will help us spot our strengths and how we could grow in our faith journey together.

What groups of people do we have in our church?

The survey will also ask you for some demographic information, such as your age group and ethnicity. We ask these questions so that we can check how far the makeup of our church mirrors the makeup of the local community. This will help us check what groups we’re reaching already and where there are opportunities to improve.

What do we expect to gain from the Survey?

What we find out will help us see where we’re doing well and help us discern areas where God might be calling us to do something new or different.

It’s important that as many people as possible in the church answer the survey, so that we get an accurate picture.

There are separate surveys for Early Years (0-5 years), Juniors (6-13 years) and adults (14+).

A large print version of the adult survey is also available.

We need you to complete the survey by midnight on Sunday 17th September please.

After that time your response will not be included in our report.
