Nailsworth Church

Nailsworth Church in Gloucestershire has several churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Nailsworth 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 per month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the reason for the decline is in simple terms that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental 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 Nailsworth community then it is truly surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Nailsworth to be a splendid location to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they assist 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 Nailsworth church and demand 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. This country is on its knees because hardly a soul wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as regional schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, lowly 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 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-gay speech-making 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 position to be - a good spot to cogitate 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 gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
