How to use your CSP in Ministry

Use your Community Social Profile to build a more effective ministry in your local area!

We believe that understanding the people in your community can be a crucial step in strengthening your ministry and mission in your local area. Your Community Social Profile is full of valuable information and insight about your local community, from the national Census.

Use our range of Ministry Tip Sheets to inform your ministry to particular groups e.g. children and youth, alongside your CSP.
Or take one page at a time and walk step-by-step through your CSP using scannable codes and links to our Webpages.


Inform your ministry to a particular group with Ministry Tip Sheets

A range of Ministry Tip Sheets have been designed to help you use information about your local community to shape your ministry to particular groups of people e.g. Children, Seniors or New Residents. We list 10 questions that your CSP can answer for you, about the people in your local community.


Explore your CSP: Walk through your CSP page-by-page

The 2014 CSP includes scannable codes and weblinks, to enable you to access a range of options online. When you see a code in your CSP you can scan it using a smartphone or device, or follow the weblink to online pages where you can Share, Engage, Dig Deeper and Apply the information.

You can take one section of your CSP at a time, walking through the information step by step.
