Take action in response to your survey results
Run a short session to reflect on the strengths and the unique giftings of your attenders, as identified in the survey. Invite conversation on how to encourage the strengths, giftings and skills already present in the congregation. Pray together as you celebrate and acknowledge the gifts God has given.
Facilitate a time of reflection to engage your results and move to action. A range of planning process options are provided in the Church Life Survey Workbook, or choose another process, to allow churchgoers to review the findings and develop a response. Invite all church attenders or a selected task group to undertake the chosen process of planning or setting a vision. Encourage all church attenders to get involved in pursuing the church's goal or vision and moving to action.
Whatever plan you complete, or vision you set, the important thing is to move to action. Ensure attenders are involved in owning the plan or vision and achieving it together.
After moving to action, review regularly to track progress and keep attenders engaged and involved in the process over time. This can be done by completing a Church Life Survey at any time in the future, at regular intervals.
