Are we good neighbours?  


Our latest research report explores whether evangelicals really love their neighbours.

We've found some remarkable illustrations of churches and individuals proactively building relationships in local communities and supporting people in their own neighbourhoods and further afield.

But others admit they struggle to find time to relate with their neighbours and regret not helping someone they saw in need. One person told us: "In completing these answers I have learned how isolated I am and need to get to know my neighbours."


Our research is designed to spark conversations and ideas in your church. See page five of the report for suggested ways your church can encourage neighbourliness.

To help churches and small groups take a deeper look at some of the issues we've produced some resources, including discussion questions, a Powerpoint presentation and summary of the key findings (from pages 4-5 of the report).


This report was published in August 2014, with the survey taken by 1,497 evangelicals in February 2014.

More detailed information about this survey is available. If you have specific questions arising from the reports or would like to see the original data tables, please contact our research manager, Greg Smith, at [email protected].
