Imagine Canadian-based data on Canadian churches for Canadian churches. Envision having access to data for your church.
The Flourishing Congregations Institute at Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta is about to launch a national survey with Canadian congregations/parishes. The Institute’s purpose is to conduct and share Canadian and tradition-specific research on congregations that are flourishing. Their mission is to bring together academics and practitioners to research the factors surrounding flourishing congregations in Canada, develop tools and resources to help congregations to flourish, and share our research findings with congregations that wish to flourish. More about the Institute here: https://www.flourishingcongregations.org.
They are looking for churches from all across Canada to take part in this study (this is Phase Two). If your church is interested in being a part of this, contact them here: Email Flourishing Congregations Institute. If you sign up, during the week of February 5 you will receive a formal invitation to participate in this national endeavour. The research will be available for us to use once completed.
