Gunnislake Church

Gunnislake Church in Cornwall has various churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Gunnislake is no exception.

Unfortunately church attendance has been plummeting for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the grounds for the decline is simply that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Gunnislake community then it's really astonishing numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Gunnislake to be a great place to live, where individuals get along, they help each other in times of need and people offer to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Gunnislake church and make a request change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly anybody desires 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 local schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, impoverished and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a good light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light recently with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, various 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 in recent times walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-homosexual words in bygone times, this was seen as "do as I say not as I do"!

On the lighter side of things churches are seen as a very quiet place 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 children was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
