In 2004 Redeemer began the exercise of taking a regular census of worship attenders after all services on one Sunday in April. Since that initial census, we have conducted it biennially in April since 2007. The level of participation in the census has always been substantial, with between 2800 and 3300 participating each time. From the comparative data from those censuses, there are some interesting observations about worship attenders and members. Here are a few examples:
As we move forward with our vision to serve more of the city, gathering and studying this information is extremely helpful. So if you are in attendance at one of our worship services on April 19, please take the time to participate in this year’s census. The information we receive helps us better understand who is attending Redeemer and how those in attendance are engaging with our initiatives, programs and events.
Alternatively, you may fill out the survey if you receive it by email, if you are a regular attendee and do not receive an email survey form, please check with the Redeemer office that we have your current contact information.
