Churches who have completed and returned their 2021 NCLS Surveys, will receive an email announcing when their Summary Profile is available online, from April 2022.
The 2021 National Church Life Survey has drawn to a close, however late churches are encouraged to still take part and return their surveys.
Churches who have already returned their completed surveys will receive an email announcement when their Summary Profile is ready to view. Thousands of churches have now received their Summary Profiles in April.
The end of March is the target date for churches to return their surveys.
That target enables NCLS to deliver timely results back to churches and denominations.
Late returns will still be processed but those results will be delayed. More information about survey options to adapt to various COVID-19 restrictions is available.
