We would love to learn more about your relationship with the Bible, how and when you engage with it and how we can encourage you in your faith journey.

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales are conducting a short survey about how we engage with the Bible as part of our preparations for our 2020 Initiative - "The God who Speaks: The Year of the Word". We will then conduct an identical survey at the end of 2020 and compare the data. We would be very grateful if you completed this short survey as it will help us to provide the right focus, activities and resources for 2020 as well as supporting dioceses going forward.

Many thanks,
Bishop Peter Brignall,
Chair of the 2020 Planning Team.
