The 2013 Church Times survey

05 July 2013

Please spare us 20 minutes of your time

In 2001, the Church Times conducted a large survey of our readers, one of the widest-ranging surveys ever undertaken. Thousands responded, generating debate about the nature of the Church's mission, and informing two academic books based on the results. It was also very helpful to us, enabling us to improve the Church Times in line with our readers' wishes.

Now, in our 150th year, we are repeating the exercise. Much has changed in the past decade. This new survey will help us to plot some of the changes and respond to them in future issues.

Once again, Leslie J. Francis, Professor of Religions and Education within the Warwick Religions and Education Research Unit, will analyse the data on behalf of the Church Times. He will work alongside Andrew Village, Reader in Practical and Empirical Theology at York St John University.

All responses will be confidential. The questionnaire can be completed anonymously, but we will need your name and contact details if you want to enter our prize draw.

Ao say thank you, we have arranged a draw of the completed questionnaires. One reader will be able to choose £250-worth of goods from Church House Bookshop, either in the Westminster shop or online (www.chbookshop.com); another will be able to choose £100-worth. Ensure you return your competed questionnaires by 26 July to take part in the draw.

One of the biggest changes in the past decade has been the spread of technology. If you can, please complete this questionnaire online via this link. This will help us enormously by enabling us to compute the answers quickly and cheaply.

Thank you for your co-operation. The results promise to be fascinating. We will report back to you in the autumn.
