Survey Kits will be dispatched to participating churches prior to November. The Survey Kit includes a range of surveys, along with a Guide for the person coordinating the survey at the church and Site Instructions for completing the survey forms on the chosen survey day(s) at each site.
Share the purpose of the 2021 NCLS with your congregation and invite their participation. Affirm the value of the everyone’s contribution to build a sense of group ownership. Notify your church attenders of your chosen survey date(s).
Some ideas to help prepare your church in the weeks before your survey day:
Show A Promotional Video
Distribute a brochure or share online
See how other churches use a Church Life Survey and discuss ways your church might best utilise this process to review, evaluate and reflect on your church's vitality.
Determine some goals on how your church will best use the survey experience to assess your health and vitality and discern your direction into the future.
A. Communicate the purpose of the survey to your church and leadership team.
B. Select a date(s) to complete the survey and inform your church.
C. Consider church readiness and any goals you want to achieve from the survey process.
NEXT STEP: From November 2021, receive your Survey Kit and ADMINISTER THE SURVEY WELL.
