The Church Development Tool, using data for your mission plan

7 July 2023

The Church Development Tool, what is your church great at?

What support would your congregation like to grow in their faith and share it with others? How representative is your congregation of the diversity of the community you serve?

The Church Development Tool can help you find out. It offers a short anonymous survey you can ask your worshipping community to complete online or on paper. You then get a simple report that gives you a clear picture of demographics, discipleship and evangelism in your church. This can inform any existing planning process. Demographic information is shown in comparison to census data for the parish.

It’s all free and accessible through Find out more at
