Church Health Survey

The Church Health Survey is a tool, which can be used by a congregation, at any time, to gather measurable feedback from their members.

The possible benefits include:

  • To conduct a regular review of church health to inform planning among your ministry teams. Results can be compared across time, to understand changes in scoring patterns.
  • To assist elders and other church leaders as they assess ministry priorities.
  • To prepare for your next Ordinary Visitation.
  • To clarify your church’s perceived ‘strengths’ and help you build on them.
  • To establish a ‘baseline’ to evaluate planned changes to the congregation’s ministries.
  • To identify possible causes of stagnation or decline.
  • To provide foundational data to ‘unblock’ contested change initiatives.
  • To capture the diverse opinions of church attenders during periods of conflict.
  • To provide an objective ’snapshot’ of your church for use in a church consultancy.
  • To construct a rich description of your new church community as you enter into a new ministry.

The Church Health Survey:

  • Reflects our theological convictions and polity.
  • Builds on relevant research.
  • Can be conducted at any time and on multiple occasions.
  • Can be completed on paper or online.
  • Will return comprehensive results within four weeks.
  • Is fully subsidised by the PCNSW General Office so that you may use it in your church without charge.*

360 Degree Feedback for Church Leaders

The 360 Feedback for Church Leaders is a tool, which can be used by a Church Leader, at any time, to gather measurable feedback designed to promote their personal and professional development.

The process requires the involvement of a handful of nominated members of the Church Leader’s Session, ministry team members and/or peers, and wider congregation (including Interns, if present).

The possible benefits include:

  • To promote the personal and professional development of the Church Leader.
  • To enable Church Leaders to understand better their impact on others around them, including team members and peers, and those they serve directly and/or indirectly.
  • To enable Church Leaders to comply with Recommendation 16.44 of the Royal Commission that requires that all people in religious or pastoral ministry, including religious leaders, be subject to effective management and oversight and undertake annual performance appraisals.
  • To enable Coaches in the Christ College Internship to meet their obligation to complete this 360 Degree process regularly.

The 360 Degree Feedback:

  • Reflects our theological convictions and polity.
  • Builds on relevant research.
  • Can be conducted at any time and on multiple occasions.
  • Can be completed online.
  • Will return comprehensive results within six weeks.
  • Is fully subsidised by the PCNSW General Office so that you may use it in your church without charge.*
