North Walsham Church

North Walsham Church in Norfolk has various churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and North Walsham is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been falling for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the population attending at least once every month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the grounds for the decline is just that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 North Walsham community then it's really shocking figures are going down. Surely we all want our North Walsham to be a fantastic spot to inhabit, where persons get along, they assist each other 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 North Walsham church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly a soul wishes 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 local schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, impoverished 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 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, scores 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 deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account 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 quiet spot to be - a good space to ruminate 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's a diversion that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
