Bishop's Stortford Church

Bishop's Stortford Church in Hertfordshire has a lot of churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Bishop's Stortford is no exception.

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

We think the cause for the decline is simply that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the staple 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 Bishop's Stortford community then it is truly astounding numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Bishop's Stortford to be a fantastic place to inhabit, where inhabitants get along, they assist 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 Bishop's Stortford church and plea for change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because hardly anybody wants to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together 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 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 training to be priests, bearing in mind 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 reflect 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 graveyard.
