Hemel Hempstead Church

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

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

We think the reason for the decline is in basic terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it's straightforward to appreciate 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches represent in our Hemel Hempstead community then it's really amazing numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Hemel Hempstead to be a splendid place to be alive, where people get along, they help each other 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 Hemel Hempstead church and make a request 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. This country is on its knees because hardly anybody wishes to work to a greater 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 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 nice light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light recently 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 quit after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-gay rhetoric 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 quiet spot to be - a good place 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 memorial..i.e. the earliest date, that is a diversion that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
