Interested in learning more about the perceptions and experiences of those in your congregation via an anonymous and confidential survey, with an eye toward identifying areas of flourishing and points for development? Consider taking the Flouring Congregations Survey, a Canadian-based survey on the Canadian Church for the Canadian Church.
Why A Congregational Survey?
Structure & Costs
There are three survey-based structures available to groups:
The fee includes the following services:
Survey materials and promotional support for a congregation to complete the survey;
Survey report, detailing the congregation’s responses to the survey questions;
General guidance and tools to interpret the survey report, best practices to present the report to one’s congregation, and possible avenues forward in light of the report findings;
Copy(ies) of the book, Signs of Life (2021) – one copy for congregations with fewer than 150 weekly attenders (average, pre-COVID), two copies for congregations between 150-499 weekly attenders (average, pre-COVID), and three copies for congregations with more than 500 weekly attenders (average, pre-COVID).
