WEBINAR: Church Life Survey Q&A with Dr Ruth Powell

WEBINAR: Church Life Survey Q&A with Dr Ruth Powell

This Webinar will be your chance to ask questions about the latest NCLS Research and dive deeper into church attender views and experiences of media.

NCLS Research is a research centre that focuses on church vitality and community spirituality and wellbeing. One of it's major projects is the five-yearly National Church Life Survey, which forms the basis of one of the largest, most comprehensive databases on church life of its kind in the world.

The latest survey was in 2021 during a pandemic, with church online a new thing, and big scale changes in political, economic and social spheres. 200,000 people from every denomination and movement across Australia filled out this survey, and in this LIVE and INTERACTIVE session Dr Powell will unpack the series of questions designed to understand Church attender views about media and local church media usage.

In her talk at CONNECT22, Dr Ruth Powell unpacked some of these statistics which demonstrate that the church in Australia is not at its healthiest. She also talked about what Aussie church goers really want to from media.
