Bridport Church

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

Sadly church attendance has been dropping for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the populace attending at least once every month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the residents.

We think the cause for the decline is simply that people do not 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 appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the core 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 represent in our Bridport community then it's really extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our Bridport to be a wonderful spot to be alive, where persons 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 Bridport church and plea for change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a greater 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 people 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, 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-gay speech-making 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 space to be - a good place to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

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