Repton Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been dipping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once every month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the population.

We think the basis for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it's straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Repton community then it is truly surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Repton to be a splendid location to inhabit, where people get along, they help each other 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 Repton church and make a request change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly a soul wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated 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, feeble 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, countless 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 schooling to be priests, considering 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 spot to cogitate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

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