The Church-24 survey

Apr 11, 2024

The Church-24 survey – an invitation to participate

You are being asked for 15 to 20 minutes of your time to complete a survey that will enable you to give your perspective, share what you believe about some significant issues, and relate your experiences of church life since the pandemic.

The Church-24 survey has three main objectives:

  1. To listen to churchgoers on a range of long-standing issues and questions, particularly as they are being brought to light in the synodal process.
  2. To explore some new issues that face us now, or soon will, but which were not talked about so much a decade ago, such as climate change, artificial intelligence, assisted dying or safeguarding procedures.
  3. The Covid pandemic is over… or is it? What’s happened to you and your faith community since lockdowns ended?

To take part, follow this link 

Please encourage others in your church and beyond to take the survey by sharing the above link 

Further details on the Church-24 survey can be found in the attached document and at

Thank you for your time and help with this project.
