Today we are taking part in the National Church Life Survey at all services. This survey of church life is conducted in the same year as the national census, although at GAC we hope for a smoother execution of the process! (Apologies to all ABS workers).

The aim is to gather information to assess where we are and to help us plan into the future. We expect the results to be back to us by April next year. To facilitate the collecting of your opinions, a process which will take about 20 minutes, our services will be a little shorter. When you have completed the survey, please move straight to morning tea or supper, as applicable in your service.

There will be a retiring offertory to help defray the costs ($688) of the NCLS. A small donation would be really helpful. Thanks for your willing participation in this process.
