I have now sent out 286 questionaires to all sorts of churches – large and small. Around 55% response rate so far. That is not too bad I suppose. It would be nice to get a few more though. I understand that some people may find it a nuisance or are suspicous of what I am doing but this is meant to be serious research.

I have had all sorts of interesting responses – lots to think about and cogitate on! Most say that they regard their ministry to visitors as important. Yet, the other answers often show that it isn’t really! The other big issue so far is how it isjust about impossible to estimate the number of people visiting any given church. I went into my own yesterday as we were open to visitors. Only 6 people had signed the visitors book (in a prominent place) yet several hundred had been in. One church has an infra red counter so they know exactly how many they have had. I suspect that many people are seriously underestimating their visitor numbers.

Other things – there is a problem. My visit to Kent has fallen through due to the illness of the person I was goingt be staying with. Let’s hope that I can sort an alternative out soon. The bike passed it’s MOT with no advisories so that is good. More to come…
