Weston-on-the-Green Church

Weston-on-the-Green Church in Oxfordshire has many churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Weston-on-the-Green is no exception.

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

We think the reason for the decline is just that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the world and the wealth of the nation 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 core 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 Weston-on-the-Green community then it is truly astounding figures are going down. Surely we all want our Weston-on-the-Green to be a wonderful spot to inhabit, where individuals get along, they assist one another 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 Weston-on-the-Green church and pressure for change, you want to help, 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 nobody wishes to work to a superior 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 collaborated 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 people such as the lonely, lowly and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a nice 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, many 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-homosexual language 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 place to be - a good place to ruminate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

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