Blackpool Faith Audit.... we are continuing to gather information until the end of May

First of all a big thank you to everyone who has completed one of our questionnaires either online or on paper, or spoken to one of our team of volunteers abou the social action or community service activities linked with your church or organisation. We are making good progress and have already gathered information from about 50 such groups across the denominations in the town.
However, we know there are many more examples of where people's faith is motivating their service in the local community. We really want to make sure that the directory we aim to produce will be complete, in order to show the extent of the work that goes on in Blackpool and to make it easy for people in the community to find, or me signposted to services and activities that will make a difference to their lives. We are especially concerned to ensure that churches outside the major denominations, the newer independent charismatic evangelical fellowships, and ecumenical and independent faith based charities are fully covered.  But we also know there are a number of parish churches and others in the major denominations who have still not responded, and some who have promised to do so but don't seem to have got around to it yet.
So if you are running some activity that serves the local community, and haven't yet submitted a questionnaire please register the details of your project using the online questionnaire. Just click on the link below and follow the instructions.. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes for each group. We will keep the survey open until the end of May.
The form should be filled in for each social action project or activity linked to your church. You may wish to ask a leader from each group to do this . 
Please forward this email to appropriate colleagues.

If you have any questions or concerns, need a paper copy of the survey, or prefer to answer it over the phone.. contact
Many thanks for your help.
