Budleigh Salterton Church

Budleigh Salterton Church in Devon has numerous churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Budleigh Salterton is no exception.

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

We think the explanation for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's easy to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the staple 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 Budleigh Salterton community then it is in reality remarkable numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Budleigh Salterton to be a fantastic spot to inhabit, where inhabitants get along, they help each other in times of hardship 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 Budleigh Salterton church and make a request change, you want to assist, 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 desires to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together 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, 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 recently 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 in recent times walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-gay speech-making 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 position to be - a good space to ruminate on the things that are happening 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 children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
