Researching the youth ministry landscape in the Church of Ireland

Reminder to complete survey for parishes!

Thank you to everyone who has so far taken the time to complete the online survey for the Church of Ireland Youth Department’s youth work audit.  Our research project is seeking to assess the full picture of how youth ministry takes place across the Church, and we need as many parishes as possible to take part.

National Youth Officer, Simon Henry, says: “Can I please encourage clergy, youth workers and key volunteers to assist us with completing our online research survey for youth ministry? The data collected will benefit the whole Church, and of course individual dioceses, so we can see an accurate landscape of youth ministry across the island and be challenged to better serve our young people and grow them in Christian faith and discipleship.”

It’s essential that enough parishes complete the survey to ensure that the results give an accurate and representative picture of youth ministry in our parishes.  To this end, we encourage every parish to take the time to fill in the survey accurately between now and our deadline of Friday, 12th July 2024.  

If anyone has any questions or queries with regards to the survey, or needs the link to the survey to be emailed to them again, or needs assistance in completing it, please contact Olive Good atolivecgood@gmail.comor on 00 353 87 245 1310.

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete.  We look forward to hearing what you tell us, so we can support you in the best way possible going forward.
