Church health assessment tool

One of the ingredients strongly associated with growth in churches of any size, place or context is a willingness to self-reflect and learn continuously.

A starting point for a church/parish might be to complete a Church Healthself-assessment questionnaire, either as a whole congregation, Parochial Church Council and/or just the leadership team; either with or without outside assistance from a Mission/Vision Action Planning 'consultant'.  We also have a shorter questionnaire available here but would recommend that you use the full self assessment questionnaire as that will give you more information to work with.

Please contact Stephanie.Rankin@Blackburn.Anglican.Org if you would like some support with the self-assessment process, or indeed any aspect of delivering growth in your parish. 

Once you've completed the self-assessment, you might consider running one or more of the following courses:
