Are you a Christian without a church? Take the survey

Updated Thursday, 22nd October 2009

What does it mean to be a Christian without a church? What exactly do people mean nowadays when they describe themselves as Christian? Share your views, and learn about other people, in this anonymous survey.

In the 2001 United Kingdom Census, 71.6% of people in the UK described themselves as Christians, but only about 15% of these said they belonged to, or were active members of, a church.

That leaves a large number of people who identify themselves as Christian who aren't active members of a particular church. The Open University is interested in finding out what Christianity means to these 'missing' Christians - and, if you're one, we'd love to hear your views.
