Participating churches were selected using four control variables (churchmanship, environment, location, and congregational size). The minister of each church was then asked to distribute questionnaires to 10 regular churchgoers across different ages and genders. Data were weighted with respect to the national age profile of churchgoers as recorded in the 1998 English Church Census. A qualitative phase of research was also undertaken via three focus groups.
