St. Keverne Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been dropping for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the population presiding at least once per month, notwithstanding Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the basis for the decline is simply that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 stand for in our St. Keverne community then it is actually amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our St. Keverne to be a good place to inhabit, where individuals 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 St. Keverne church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as neighborhood schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, feeble 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 six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, many 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-gay rhetoric 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 quiet spot to be - a good place to reflect 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 headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
