GSM Parishes Web Survey

Our Grovely and Samford communities are engaged in reflecting on and responding to the results of the National Church life Survey taken in the Parish in late 2016. The results clearly indicate four areas where we think our communities need to further grow and develop. We now need your ideas for progressing those.

This website survey invites your comment if you have not been able to collect and complete a paper questionnaire distributed at Masses on 8th and 9th October.

We have listed the four areas and ask for your ideas as to how we can progress them. There are 2 examples given for each. Please list your idea(s) for any area for which you want to share your thoughts

Submissions will close on 15th October. Thank you for your contribution as we continue to discern our future mission.
