A survey to listen to their experiences of church and life
Equipping effective practices in a "new normal"
Archbishop, Anglican Diocese of Sydney
‘Australian churches have been richly blessed by the dedicated team of workers who undertake the National Church Life Survey every five years. This unique longitudinal resource, dating back to 1991, has provided a rich mine of data for research into the health and well-being of our churches.’
It may be more important than ever to listen and reconnect
Helping church leaders to navigate complexity and nurture health
Moderator, Uniting Church NSW & the ACT Synod
‘The Uniting Church has been a strong advocate for NCLS from the beginning. The insightful research and the clarity of the results help us understand how we can serve our communities by developing resources in our congregations across our Synod. The NCLS also enables us to understand the challenges facing the contemporary Church.’
Used by over 20 denominations

National Ministries Director, Baptist Churches in NSW
‘NCLS has become an essential resource for the leadership of local Baptist churches as they seek to be more effective as agents of God's mission in their local context. At a national level the NCLS research is pivotal to the development of missional strategies for the Australian Baptist movement as we seek to see our nation transformed by Jesus.’
