Richmond-upon-Thames Church

Richmond-upon-Thames Church in Greater London has many churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Richmond-upon-Thames is no exception.

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

We think the grounds for the decline is simply that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is easy to comprehend 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Richmond-upon-Thames community then it's truly astonishing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Richmond-upon-Thames to be a splendid spot to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they help one another in times of need 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 Richmond-upon-Thames 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 nobody wants to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as neighborhood 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 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 six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, loads of 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-homosexual 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 place 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 children was to find the oldest tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
