Welcome to the 2018 annual statistical return.
It's that time again, and I'm looking forward to hearing about the life of each of our churches as expressed in our annual statistics! These assist our Bishop and Cabinet in planning for pastoral ministry across the conference, as well as providing a fascinating historical perspective. This isn't only for chartered churches - we also want to collect statistics from new church starts. These can be very helpful in future to understand how churches grow and develop.
I would encourage you to check out the web site provided by GCFA - www.umdata.org - to explore the conference (and other conferences!) further. Your help in providing us with the raw information is greatly appreciated.
For full details, check out our Guide to Statistics 2018.
Here are some of the highlights for the 2018 reports:
Pastors, as I’m sure you are aware, the final submission of the annual reports is your responsibility but I encourage you to involve others in your congregation in the preparation of the information. Sharing the stories told by the statistics, and perhaps especially the comparisons with prior years, may yield some interesting insights. Please ensure that all involved have a copy of these documents to help them.
Finally, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. My contact details are below:
