National Church Life Survey

Next Sunday, 30th October we will be conducting the National Church Life Survey (NCLS). We will also conducting the survey for the children aged 8 and older at our Friday kids’ and youth programs this week.

The purpose of the NCLS is to help churches to be more vital and effective. Through the survey our churchgoers will be able to give their thoughts, opinions and experiences of church life. The survey provides valuable feedback that enables leaders at local, regional and national levels to evaluate and plan for the future.

Our church’s contribution will form an important part of the national snapshot of the whole Australian Church. For more in formation visit
