Impact Audits


NAYBA has developed a tool to measure and report the collective social impact of the Church in local communities – we call it the NAYBA Impact Audit.

The approach, and the data it provides, has helped to bring together churches of all denominations, transform the relationship between churches and civic leadership, and positively shift perceptions about the role and value of the church in society.

The inaugural Australian audit was conducted in the Illawarra region of New South Wales (under the previous name of the “Cinnamon Faith Action Audit”). With almost $10 million in annual social impact value and over 140,000 interactions with people in need, the results offer powerful evidence that ‘faith really is a force for good’.

Also available in the following languages:





Behind the numbers is the story of a region where people genuinely care about one another, where the least are not forgotten, and where faith organisations play an active role in the community.
