Community Survey 2017
THE MUSWELL HILL COMMUNITY SURVEY 2017 IS HERE
A message from our Chair
When I became shul chair, my main aim and the thing I have always been passionate about in all my involvement with the community, was to engage as many people as possible in shul life. It may be through coming to a morning minyan, attending shabbat services, volunteering for the kiddish rota, coming to an educational talk or getting involved in one of our social action projects, people connect in different ways both spiritually and socially which all have value.
The board have a strategy away day planned for November to discuss the topic of engagement and what the balance is of different shul activities, religious, social and cultural. We opened a discussion at one of our Board meetings on this topic and found ourselves conjecturing on various reasons why people may or may not engage in shul activities and how they find out about them. It seemed to us at this point that hard data would be far more useful than speculating and would be useful to inform the strategy for the community and the building going forward.
One of our community members Lynsey Showman has very kindly agreed to put together and analyse the results of this community survey, the more people who complete this very short survey the more useful the data will be so please do take 5-10 minutes to do it. We are also offering everyone who completes the survey, the chance to enter in a prize draw for a £50 donation to a charity of your choosing.
So please help us to build the best community we can, and to also help another charity of your choice at the same time – perfect!
