Attenders Survey

The Attenders Survey is designed to be completed by all church attenders aged 15 years and over.

It is based on the successful 2006 format, however it will be shorter in length in 2011.

20 minutes: It should take attenders about 20 minutes to complete. We suggest allocating 20 minutes in the middle of the church service, mass or gathering for attenders to fill in their survey, then allow extra time afterwards for people to complete their survey if needed.

One survey per attender: Each attender is asked to fill in an attenders survey once only. Churches are welcome to hand out attender surveys for completion at all activities of spiritual nurture, eg worship services, small groups, mid week communion, youth group etc., however we ask that each person fill in an attender survey form once only.

(NB.Some church attenders will also be lay leaders, members of ministry teams etc. They can fill in an attenders survey and a leaders survey if they fit both categories.)

Varied Attender surveys: Attender surveys may have a few different questions. Please don't worry if your survey pack contains slightly different looking attender forms. Hand them out in the order they were sent to you. A random selection of people throughout all churches will be answering some more customised questions on particular topics.

Languages other than English: Attender surveys are available in several different languages. Protestant: Chinese, Tongan, Korean and Vietnamese. Catholic: Italian and Vietnamese. For more information click here.
