Nailsea Church

Nailsea Church in Avon has many churches for separate religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Nailsea is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been sinking for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once every month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the basis for the decline is simply that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Nailsea community then it is actually startling figures are going down. Surely we all want our Nailsea to be a wonderful place to live, where persons get along, they help one another in times of need and people give to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Nailsea church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as regional schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, poor and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a nice light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light of late with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, a lot of people have speculated that it is not just a matter of the pope getting older and not being able to carry out his job to the fullest.

The scottish Cardinal Keith O'Brien recently quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-gay language in the past, this was seen as "do as I say not as I do"!

On the lighter side of things churches are seen as a very peaceful space to be - a good spot to ruminate on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
