Thank you readers
The Anglican Journal is grateful to all those readers who participated in our advertising readership survey.
Over the past few months, readers have been interviewed by phone to give us a better understanding of who they are. The information is vital for advertisers considering the Journal as a place to market their products and services.
Advertising is an important source of revenue for the Journal and enables us to bring you news and features from across the country and around the world at the lowest cost to the church.
Thank you to all who participated for your help.
