Dear Congregation Members and Friends,

This questionnaire provides you a formal opportunity to tell Northbrae's Church Council, Worship Team, Focus Group and Administrative Leaders your dreams and preferences regarding Northbrae's future.

Understanding your individual and our congregation's collective preferences regarding our immediate and long term future is essential for our leadership to set the right trajectory and immediate agenda for envisioning Northbrae's future.

Please help us with this "foundation building" task by completing this questionnaire by Wednesday March 28, 2018. If you prefer to complete the paper version of this survey please drop by, or contact, the church office. Feedback results will be shared with all participants as quickly as possible and no later than May 6th. This survey is anonymous, however, if you would like a Worship Team member or other church leader to contact you, please identify yourself and the best way for us to reach you in the appropriate comment section.

On behalf of all of us, thank you for your input in completing this questionnaire. We look forward to your input and continued participation during this phase of our history.

John Oldham
Council President
