Local Churches

Equipping local churches to strengthen their health and vitality

St Ambrose Mass 01

Australian churches have taken part in the National Church Life Survey (NCLS) every five years since 1991, to reflect on and nurture their church’s health. This year, around 20 denominations will again take part in the 2021 NCLS. 

The goal is to invest in the future vitality of your local church, and you will benefit from the credible mission research findings. You will gain valuable feedback on the effectiveness and sustainability of your ministry to help you navigate the future.

See how to take part, find your regional coordinator or sign your church up today by ordering surveys.
