The InHarmony Report
The InHarmony Report is the result of a survey of music for worship in Anglican churches across the Diocese of St Edmundsbury & Ipswich. 444 parishes responded to the questionnaire (an exceptionally high 94% response rate), so we believe that this survey is the most comprehensive of its kind to be carried out in any Diocese in the country in recent years.
Building on an earlier survey by the Suffolk Organists Association, the InHarmony Survey sought to find out not only what is currently happening in the area of music for worship, but also to give parishes the opportunity to indicate areas in which they would like to move forward – for example, by introducing new music, or through training workshops.
Published in January 2018, the report includes recommendations for future training events and workshops to encourage new growth, and to support rural churches in particular with the challenge of providing appropriate music to enhance worship.
