Thank you to everyone who filled in our Communications Survey in May and thanks to Sue in the Church Office for inputting all the data. The charts below (click to enlarge) show the main findings. There are some interesting results and implications for how we ‘do’ communications at St John’s.
What you most want to know about is ‘what’s on’ – but it is interesting looking at this chart, to see that receiving prayer requests is very high up on your agenda.
Acceess to sermons that you may have missed or you want to hear again, or the notes is also important to you.
You have converted to New Media! To be fair this is only to be expected and reflects current trends.
You can easily see that using Email tops the list . If we ignore the next column for a moment then all the others are examples of digital communication.
But …. the ‘old-fashioned’ printed word does get a good showing, as it is the second highest selection. As I compile the Welcome Sheet each week I do wonder to myself “does anyone ever read this!” That over 100 people ticked this box encourages me.
Now this one surprised me.
You are really keen on the idea of an online group for sharing information and news. My question for you – is there anyone out there who would like to organise this? Leave a comment below or drop me an email.
Some overall statistics:
262 people completed the survey and over 50 of these included a comment on their thoughts and ideas about communications at St John’s. Sadly, most of you who gave a comment did not supply your contact details and so I can’t get back to you. However, we have taken notice of what was said, and where you did give your details I will be getting back to you shortly with a response.
The Communications Survey has clearly shown that communicating by Email is something that we cannot ignore and is favoured by you as a method of receiving information. We will be addressing this during the next few months.
