Go door-to-door in your neighbourhood, and ask residents what they are thankful for, and what they most need. This information can then be used:

  • to inform future outreach projects

  • as part of your Harvest service; giving an overview of what people in the area are thankful for and praying for their needs.

While moving through the estate, you can ask people if they have any prayer requests that you can intercede for during Harvest. You may want to leave them a postcard to fill in and drop back to you.
Why not visit local shops, businesses and schools that are in your community? You could:

  • ask the individuals what they are thankful for about your area

  • take photos of them for a creative display in your church (as a way of celebrating the Harvest of the local area)

  • leave the people you speak to with an invitation to attend a Harvest service, where they can see the display.


The idea of the community survey is to find out what local residents are thankful for, and what they need. Then, this information should be used to seek improve the area in a way that benefits everyone.


The overall goal would be to successfully utilize the information from the survey to improve the area.
