Henley-on-Thames Church

Henley-on-Thames Church in Oxfordshire has a lot of churches for separate religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Henley-on-Thames is no exception.

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

We think the grounds for the decline is just that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth 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 staple 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 stand for in our Henley-on-Thames community then it is truly remarkable figures are going down. Surely we all want our Henley-on-Thames to be a good location to be alive, where persons get along, they help one another 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 Henley-on-Thames church and make a request 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. This country is on its knees because hardly anybody wants to work to a greater 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 worked together 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 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, a lot 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 schooling to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual 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 place to be - a good place to contemplate on the things that are going on 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 game that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the cemetery.
