Community Of Faith Survey
This survey is being conducted by the Profile Committee of our Pastoral Charge to
determine what kind of a community of faith we are, as we prepare a call for a Minister
for our Charge. It is important that everyone’s opinions and views be considered,
regardless of age (including youth aged 12 and up), and frequency of attendance (in
person or online services). We want to hear from everyone in the family, whether you
are the parent, grandparent, guardian, or youth. We know that this survey has several
questions and is very thorough, but your feedback is very important and now is when
we need it. Be honest, no one is judging; we value everyone’s opinion. All responses
will be kept confidential.

Please complete this survey by November 15th, 2021

If you have any questions, please email community_of_faith@brituc.ca

Thank you very much for participating.
