Eastleigh Church

Eastleigh Church in Hampshire has many churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Eastleigh is no exception.

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

We think the rationale for the decline is just that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's easy to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Eastleigh community then it is really remarkable figures are going down. Surely we all want our Eastleigh to be a good spot to inhabit, where persons get along, they help each other 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 Eastleigh church and plea for change, you want to help, 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 nobody wishes to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together 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 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, countless 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 training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-gay language 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 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 kids amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
