Rainham Church

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

Alas church attendance has been tumbling for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the explanation for the decline is simply that people do not have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is easy to comprehend 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 stand for in our Rainham community then it's in reality surprising numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Rainham to be a wonderful spot to be alive, where people get along, they assist each other 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 Rainham church and make a request 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 hardly anybody wants to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized 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, meager 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 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, loads of 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 training to be priests, taking into account his anti-gay rhetoric 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 peaceful space to be - a good space to cogitate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest headstone..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 graveyard.
