The United Church of Canada has posted a short survey for young people to answer. The purpose of the survey is, as they put it: "You raised your voices at GC43 – young people want a voice in The United Church of Canada. We’re listening. Complete this quick survey (just nine questions!) to help us better understand how we can support the participation of young people in the life of the church. You don’t need to answer any personal questions – just let us know how you want to Be the Church."
The survey is open to submissions until August 28, 2019.
