I have been a Senior Researcher with the Christian Research Association since 2007 and also work concurrently as a Senior Researcher with the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference’s National Centre for Pastoral Research.

As the CRA’s Research Co-ordinator I am the key person who interfaces between our clients and our board. Please feel free to contact me to discuss how the CRA can best help you to meet your strategic goals through the provision of research and data analysis.

Our volunteers

The CRA is proud to have a small, but dedicated, cohort of volunteers who give of their time to help us delivery optimal research and publication outcomes to clients.  For example, volunteers, under the leadership of Rev Dr Neville Carr, constitute our Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC), while other volunteers assist with editing, proof-reading, administration, and IT.  To all our volunteers we say “thank you”!

If you would like to discuss becoming a CRA volunteer please contact our Research Co-ordinator Dr Stephen Reid.
