Thank you to the 33 congregants who responded to our survey. We wanted to find out what church activities you had participated in, and what you would like to see offered as the pandemic continues. The work of the church continues with close to 100% of the respondants watching our online services, 40% participating in small groups, such as the 9:00 am worship group and the men's virtual pub night and 30% calling homebound members of the congregation. Others knitted items for the knitting group, participated as member of the Prayer Connections Team, and a few attended gatherings in local parks or outdoor classes.

Strong interest (over 40%) was expressed in small groups meeting via Zoom in topics including exploring spirituality, reconciliation and indigenous issues, and book or Bible study. Climate and environmental issues and intercultural awareness also ranked highly. More than 80% of the respondants wished for small group social gatherings bringing their own coffee and snacks, a reflection of the isolation many are feeling.

The survey results have been forwarded to the Board for their consideration and planning. We hope that it will inform the planning of the various teams in the church. Download the file below  if you wish to read the summary of the survey.
