How did you find the sermon?


Last week I posted a survey on some social media: here is the question:

Think back to the most recent sermon or talk you heard in your church: how would you describe it? Please tick all the descriptions that apply.

Just over 60 people responded and here is the summary of the results:


Note the following:

  • Most people (66%) thought that what they heard was well thought out and that the preacher did a good job of explaining the Bible.
  • Almost 2/3 were inspired and encouraged to change.
  • No one was left feeling guilty or confused.
  • Slightly more than half felt the sermon left them feeling glad to be a Christian. That’s good, but should that number be higher?

If you would like to add your voice to the survey, here is the link.

And if anyone is looking for a topic for some post-graduate research, feel free to use this as a starting point.

One thought on “How did you find the sermon?

  1. I’d be interested to see answers to questions asked about the difference the sermon is making in the respondent’s life – more of a reflection on us, than on the sermon deliverer
