Dear members, adherents and friends of  St. Andrew’s United Church:

The change of the ministerial team is a critical event in the life of a congregation.  A  Visioning Committee has been established to gather information and try and discern what direction the church will go as part of the process as we prepare for Rev. Jane Howe’s retirement this spring. The task of the Committee is to help our church define the congregation’s perceptions of itself, its strengths and weaknesses, its relative priorities, and suggestions for future direction. Participation in this survey ensures that your views will be heard.

This survey not only asks questions about our congregation and your own involvement, but also seeks your input on pastoral leadership and your vision for our future. When answering the questions, please choose your most preferred response – even if it does not fit perfectly.  Answered items increase the usefulness of the data for our interpretation. 

This survey is open to all who consider themselves to be members, adherents or friends of the St. Andrew’s faith community. This is an individual survey; one survey per person. It is important that everyone participate – all responses are anonymous so please share with us

  • This online survey should be completed in one session.
  • There are FIVE sections. SECTIONS 3, 4 and 5  are optional.
  • It should take about 20-25 minutes to complete all five sections
  • You may go back to amend your responses any time. but once you have hit the “submit” button at the end of Section 5, your survey responses will be anonymously submitted.
  • If you have any questions please call Pat Kirton-Bailey at 705-493-4035 or forward them to the Committee by e-mail (vision@standrews-northbay.ca )

Thank you for your co-operation in filling out this survey.  We hope that in addition to assisting St. Andrew’s, you find this process helpful in reflecting on your faith, the meaning of your church experience and your hopes for our future.

Yours in Christ,

The Visioning Committee
