Survey: the Church Scene

Thursday, February 26, 2009

I am in the process of running a simple survey on churches’ practice and participation in the basic elements of Christianity: the Lord’s Supper, prayer meeting, bible study and the usage of hymns and hymnals. I have so far collated data for 17 churches in Malaysia. Would you be able to help as well by answering the following questions? You can send the information to ngpearlie at yahoo dot com.

1) Tradition: (Methodist, Pentescostal, Presbyterian, Anglican, etc)

2) Church: (will not be disclosed; required to prevent multiple counting)

3) Average total number of people attending Sunday service(s):
If you have more than one service, please provide the total average, i.e. add up all the average number of worshippers of all services, regardless of language of the services.

4) When is Lord's Supper held:

5) Number of prayer meetings held in a week:

6) Attendance of all the prayer meetings added up together:

7) Number of adult bible study sessions held in a week:

8) Attendance of all the bible study sessions added up together:
If bible study is held in a cell-group format, please provide total number of cell groups.

9) Do you use the hymnal? Which one?

10) If no hymnals, do you sing hymns?

Thank you!
