A Pilot Diversity Survey among Adventist Church Members in the UK and Ireland

British Union Conference Secretariat / Dr Mandela Thyoka

The British Union Conference is inviting all members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the UK and Ireland to participate in a short online survey regarding diversity within our church. In our continuous effort to nurture a vibrant, inclusive, and thriving church community, this survey will assist us in gathering invaluable insights into the ethnic diversity within our church, which will help guide our future evangelistic initiatives and enable us to address the needs of our congregations more effectively. Your input is crucial in shaping the direction of our church, from enhancing worship services and community engagement to educational programmes and outreach efforts. Participating in this survey makes you an essential part of that process. We believe that together, we can make our church a welcoming and nurturing place for all, fostering spiritual growth and a more profound sense of belonging.

This survey has been designed to be simple, and your responses will remain confidential. Your honest feedback is not only encouraged but deeply appreciated.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences. Your voice is a gift to our church community, and we are excited to embark on this journey of reflection, growth, and unity together.
