Covid-19 and Church Engagement Survey 

We have created a quick online survey to find out how churches are currently meeting. This will help us know how to best tailor our resources for churches at this time. If you can spare five minutes, please do complete it for us. 

Loving God. Come now and make us into a global neighbourhood, looking out for each other through struggle and crisis, reaching out to strangers who become sisters and brothers, shape us into a caring community, strengthening each other through every challenge, standing together until justice comes for all. In your name we pray. Amen.
