We are interested in feedback from all groups within Presbyterian and Uniting parishes - ministers, elders, members, youth pastors, family workers, members and others - about the usefulness of Church communications like our website, Bush Telegraph and Spanz.
Your feedback will help us understand what is working well with our communications, and what areas we need to work on to ensure that our efforts better meet the needs of church leaders and members.
We invite you to take this online survey, which will take about 5 minutes to complete.
