The Christian Opinion Panel: Giving Survey

Welcome to our latest Christian Opinion Panel Survey, this was commissioned by TMH Media as a follow up to our successful 2015 consumer survey of UK Christians.

In our latest study we surveyed Christian TV viewers. Our research enabled us to join the dots between their TV viewing habits and their charitable giving behaviour. This has enabled us to gain a much more in-depth understanding into how Christians donate. The survey is made up of 546 UK Christians and delivers insight into their giving habits.

Highlights include information on Legacy Giving, and that an overwhelming 87% of Christian TV viewers give to charity.

“Christianity is the largest religion according to the 2011 Census, over 33 million (59.3 percent of the UK population) confirmed they were Christians when asked, ‘what is your religion?’. For many charitable organisations it is an untapped audience and one which they struggle to effectively engage and connect with. Our experience with and insight into the UK Christian population, their media habits and donation patterns, shows that with the right message through the right channel, charities and churches can successfully reach and engage with this large donor base”.
