The Summary Report of the findings from the Church Growth Research Programme has just been published. It makes for helpful and informative reading and will be a useful support in discerning our own diocesan and parish strategies for growth. You can download the report at: From Anecdote To Evidence – Findings from the Church Growth Research Programme 2011-2013

The Church Growth Research Programme is an 18 month research project exploring some of the factors that might explain church growth in the Church of England. Findings from this research should help equip and resource those in parish ministry and provide decision makers at every level of the Church with valuable evidence on how resources can be allocated to support growth.
