Sandford Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been tumbling for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once per month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the grounds for the decline is simply that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to understand 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 think on all the good things that Churches represent in our Sandford community then it is truly amazing numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Sandford to be a wonderful spot to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they help one another 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 Sandford church and demand change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community 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's get organized 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 inhabitants such as the lonely, feeble 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 in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, numerous 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-homosexual words 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 spot to be - a good space 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 gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
