Margate Church

Margate Church in Kent has various churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Margate is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been dropping for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the population.

We think the basis for the decline is just that people don't believe in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to understand 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Margate community then it's truly astounding figures are going down. Surely we all want our Margate to be a good spot to dwell, where persons get along, they assist one another 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 Margate church and plea for change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody 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 collaborated with other organisations such as native 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 nice 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, 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 recently 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 position to be - a good place to reflect 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 game that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
