We have now produced reports covering many different topics such as discipleship, work, the family, overseas connections, money and evangelism. Our latest report Good news for the poor? was released in May 2014 and explores whether evangelicals really love their neighbours. Our surveys in the next year will focus on politics and poverty.
We've also been drafting longer reflective papers with more detailed analysis on key topics such as: faith, social capital and the Big Society; and the relationship between evangelicals and politics. A panel of leading academics have been helping us consider the sociological importance of the findings and are keen to contribute their own papers into a substantial book with a view to publication within the next two years.
There is much to celebrate in our reports. They confirm a distinctive counter-cultural evangelical lifestyle and identify emerging trends. However, they also highlight things that should be of great concern to Christians across the UK.
It's really important that we don't let this valuable research just gather dust on the shelf. Instead we need to find ways to share the findings more widely and to generate a lively discussion of the implications. And then we need to pray it through and get to work in the mission that God has called us to in the UK.
