Sunbury-on-Thames Church

Sunbury-on-Thames Church in Middlesex has many churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Sunbury-on-Thames is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been dipping for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once per month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the rationale for the decline is just that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 Sunbury-on-Thames community then it is actually extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Sunbury-on-Thames to be a fantastic spot to inhabit, where inhabitants get along, they assist 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 Sunbury-on-Thames church and pressure 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 hardly anybody desires to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated 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 inhabitants such as the lonely, feeble 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 six hundred 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 in recent times resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, considering his anti-gay 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 spot to be - a good spot to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

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 smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
