About us

Christian Research: Telling the Story of the Christian Community's Life and Mission

We believe that the Christian community has a compelling, creative and - sometimes - complex story to share with the world.

They are an influential community and through our panel we enable them to have a voice, to uncover insights, grow in intelligent observations and think seriously about the impact that their faith has on our world today.

We became an independent charity in 1993. In 2007 we became part of Bible Society Group, and continue to trade as Christian Research. We operate as an independent market research agency and as MRS members with all that that ensures for the independence, impartiality and confidentiality so valued by our clients.  We bring to clients throughout the UK and further afield a combination of the strength, mission and support of Bible Society and the experience skill and commitment of a strong research team to provide the best in Christian research through our Resonate online panel.
