National Church Life Survey

All Christian churches in Australia have been invited to join the 2016 National Church Life Survey (NCLS) in October 2016.

Invitation packs have recently been sent to every local church.

NCLS Research works with denominational leaders on survey design and resource delivery to best suit churches. Some denominations integrate the NCLS with their own strategic plans and some subsidise the costs for local churches.

International and national researchers are also being consulted on wide-ranging research topics.

Every local church is welcome to take part in the 2016 NCLS – whether or not their region is fully involved.

“This national venture, held every five years since 1991, alongside the national Census, is only possible with the joint participation of thousands of church leaders nationwide. It is testimony to the visionary leadership and trust that forms the basis of this church life research,” said Dr Ruth Powell, director of NCLS Research.

Survey orders are now open. For more info contact Rev David Kriel, mission planner at the Uniting Church WA, on (08) 9260 9800 or email
