Chelmsford Church

Chelmsford Church in Essex has numerous churches for separate religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Chelmsford is no exception.

Unfortunately church attendance has been falling for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the population attending at least once every month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the explanation 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 comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches represent in our Chelmsford community then it is truly astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Chelmsford to be a fantastic spot to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they assist each other in times of need 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 Chelmsford 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's get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as community schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, poor 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 of late with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than six hundred 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-homosexual words 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 space 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 tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
