Maldon Church

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

Unfortunately church attendance has been dropping for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the population.

We think the grounds for the decline is just that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches represent in our Maldon community then it's in reality surprising numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Maldon to be a splendid place to inhabit, where persons get along, they help 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 Maldon church and pressure for change, you want to assist, 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 hardly anybody 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 collaborated with other organisations such as resident schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, lowly 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 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 recently walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-gay rhetoric 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 place to be - a good spot to contemplate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest tombstone..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 run/walk round the graveyard.
