Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

So you know what to expect, we’re going to ask you questions about your relationship with God, about prayer, the Bible, church, etc.

But don’t worry, we’re not checking up you. All the responses are deliberately anonymous so no one will know how you have answered any of the questions. This isn’t about testing how good you are, but about understanding more about us as a church. So to help us get the most out of this (and as it is anonymous!) we’d be really grateful if you could be as honest as possible in your responses.

Your answers will help us understand two things…

Firstly, it will help us understand the spiritual health of us as a church right now. For example, if lots of people respond to say they struggle to read the Bible regularly, we can look into ways we can help with that. Or if people say reading the Bible is fine, but sharing their faith with others is a stumbling block, again it helps us know how we can try to help.

Secondly, we’re planning to repeat this survey again at a later date so by comparing the results it will help us understand if the things we do (individually and together) are helping us to grow or not.

We estimate it will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Most of the questions are multiple choice, but there will be opportunities for you to write more if you want to.

Thank you again for helping us with this. If you have questions or cannot complete this survey for some reason please email info@ststephens.org.uk.
