Riverside Church Community Survey


Riverside is at a unique time of reflection and planning for the future. We have an opportunity to build a church for the next 90 years.  What shall we do with this opportunity?

Your input is VITAL to this process. The Congregational Survey is a way to hear from all who care about Riverside – members and non-members alike.


The Survey is your invitation to share your personal views and experiences, hopes, and priorities on a range of issues important to our life together as a faith community.

We need to hear from you to understand how best to advance our spiritual mission, commitment to justice and service to our neighbors with our long-term financial sustainability.

The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete – but there’s plenty of space for additional comments or suggestions you might want to share.  All your answers are confidential.

You can complete the survey using a paper version if you prefer. (Just email rdc@trcnyc.org.)

Results of the survey will be shared with the entire congregation. We will have open forums and discussion groups to engage the congregation in interpretation and application of what we’ve learned to plan for the near and long-term future of The Riverside Church.
