Chandler's Ford Church

Chandler's Ford Church in Hampshire has several churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Chandler's Ford is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been dropping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the cause for the decline is in basic terms that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 think on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Chandler's Ford community then it's truly surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Chandler's Ford to be a fantastic place to be alive, where inhabitants get along, they assist one another 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 Chandler's Ford church and pressure for change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as local schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, meager 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 six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, numerous 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 training to be priests, taking into consideration 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 spot to be - a good spot to contemplate 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 tombstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
