Cartmel Church

Cartmel Church in Cumbria has a lot of churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Cartmel is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been tumbling 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 populace.

We think the grounds for the decline is simply that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches represent in our Cartmel community then it's truly extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Cartmel to be a splendid spot to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they assist each other in times of hardship 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 Cartmel church and plea for 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 hardly a soul wishes to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as community schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, meager 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 of late with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, scores 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual words 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 place to be - a good place to contemplate 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's a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
