Information and Orders

A Church Life Survey enables a church to assess the health and vitality of a church.

As it is based on a solid research framework, it allows a church to go beyond counting heads to assess nine core qualities and three attendance measures in their church.

A Church Life Survey is a comprehensive survey tool, developed by NCLS Research over 20 years of mission research in thousands of churches in Australia and overseas.  Church Life Surveys are available to churches/parishes at any time.

The Survey offers survey forms for adult church attenders aged 15 years and over, available in English, Arabic, Chinese, Dinka, Korean, Italian, Tongan and Vietnamese.

Children’s Survey forms are also available for children aged 8 to 14.
