Eynsham Church

Eynsham Church in Oxfordshire has a lot of churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Eynsham is no exception.

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

We think the grounds for the decline is simply that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Eynsham community then it is in reality startling numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Eynsham to be a good place to be alive, where individuals 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 Eynsham church and pressure for change, you want to help, 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 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 inhabitants 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 six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, numerous 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, bearing in mind 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 space to cogitate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep children pleased for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
