Portsmouth Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been dropping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once every month, notwithstanding Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the basis for the decline is simply that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 think on all the good things that Churches represent in our Portsmouth community then it's in reality amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Portsmouth to be a fantastic place to live, where individuals get along, they assist 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 Portsmouth church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody desires 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 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 people such as the lonely, humble 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 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, many 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, bearing in mind his anti-homosexual speech-making 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 ruminate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
