LATEST SURVEY : Religions, belief and unbelief

Help us understand the beliefs, practices and habits of evangelical Christians in the UK today.

Our latest survey is about living in a society which is both religiously diverse and strongly shaped by secular thinking, values and norms. How do we as Christians understand and navigate our way through this complexity while remaining faithful and secure in Christ?

We'd love you to take part in the survey, which is open until 30 September.


Evangelical about EvangelismCelebrating the Alliance's 170th anniversary,our latest research contains details on what evangelicals know about the history of evangelicalism in our country, how evangelicals are perceived publicly, as well as the history of the alliance.

The findings can be found here.



Looking for the most up-to-date statistics and information on what evangelical Christians really think and do? Then the 21st Century Evangelicals research series – an ongoing study into the beliefs, habits and practices of evangelical Christians in the UK – is for you.

Some of the questions explored by the series include: What is a typical evangelical Christian? What contributions do they make to society? What do they believe? What is distinctive about their lifestyle? What opinions do they hold about the most pressing issues of the day?

Up to 1,800 evangelicals have taken our regular surveys on relevant issues ranging from work and education to church life and evangelism. 

The findings are sparking conversations and ideas in churches across the UK, helping them make more effective plans for mission and ministry today. Further down the page you can view a full list of our research reports. 

January 2011 saw the launch of 21st Century Evangelicals - a groundbreaking survey of more than 17,000 respondents. But this was just the beginning - a snapshot. From this snapshot, we are now working to produce a moving picture. Here are links to all the research reports in the series:


John Glass, general superintendent of Elim Pentecostal Churches, recommends the research: "Once again, through precise analysis and helpful insight, the Evangelical Alliance has provided us with a reliable lens through which we can better understand the context in which we seek to serve – and so enabling us to focus with clarity on issues we should prioritise."

Network Church St Albans have used the reports for prayer and discussion, as Louise Chick explains: "These are such fantastic little booklets, jam-packed with fascinating and thought provoking information. We have encouraged our cell groups to use them for prayer and discussion and made a copy available for each church member, along with the discussion-starter questions."


Our research panel is so important to us, and we are always looking for more people to get involved and take part in this important research. We would love you to join the panel by filling in the 'Join the Panel' form on the right-hand-side.
