Nearly 100 young people have completed The Big Survey! Why are we asking young people to take part? (Read more below..) ? ?

25 Years Later: How Have Young People’s Views Changed?

In 1993 the Youth and Children’s Department of the Methodist Church In Ireland carried out a survey to hear young people’s views on the church and how it impacts their life and society. 25 years later we are repeating that survey! Why? The report that was produced in 1993 was called Will our faith have children?’ That question is even more relevant today, as we navigate what it looks like as church to pass on faith to the next generation.

This survey is just one part of a larger piece of research IMYC is carrying out over the next year. We will also be producing a youth group session to discover some of the ‘why’s?’ behind there survey responses, we will be hearing the voice of children, carrying out some interviews with young adults and focus groups with parents.

We may have asked slightly different questions if we had been writing it now, but to be able to compare the results we are sticking with the original! If there is anything else you wish to comment on that you feel the questions don’t cover please do so at the end!

So we need your help – complete or share this survey to any 12-30 year olds you have in your networks and keep an eye out for the other resources that will come your way during the year!
