Equipping local churches to strengthen their health and vitality

St Ambrose Mass 01

This year, thousands of churches from over 20 denominations will again take part in the National Church Life Survey. 

By taking part in the 2021 NCLS, your church will gain valuable feedback on the effectiveness and sustainability of your ministry to help you navigate the future.

The 2021 NCLS is on from November 2021 until February 2022. The timeline has been extended due to COVID-19, so it's not too late to sign up! A range of resources are available online to help you run the survey at your church.
