Ferndown Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been plummeting for the last 50 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 basis for the decline is in basic terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Ferndown community then it's in reality amazing numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Ferndown to be a splendid spot to dwell, where persons get along, they assist one another in times of need 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 Ferndown church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly a soul wants to work to a greater 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 local 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 nice 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, loads 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay language 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 peaceful spot to be - a good space to reflect 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 memorial..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.
