Local Community Survey

In 15 minutes see how people from your local area view church, faith and community needs

Local Community Surveys

help a church to gain insights into people in the local area who are connected to the church in some way, their views on the community and their attitudes to faith and church. 


The Local Community Survey is for people connected with a church, but not regularly attending, for example playgroup attendees, youth group parents, or community dinners.
It is designed to learn about the views and practices of people in the community (beyond regular attenders) and help a church to strengthen their connections with the wider community.
