Wadhurst Church

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

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

We think the explanation for the decline is just that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 Wadhurst community then it is truly astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Wadhurst to be a great location to inhabit, where inhabitants get along, they assist one another 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 Wadhurst church and make a request change, you want to help, 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 better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as native 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 nice light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light recently with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, various 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 training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-homosexual language 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 space to cogitate on the things that are happening 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's a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
