Kesgrave Church

Kesgrave Church in Suffolk has many churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Kesgrave is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been falling for the last 50 years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the basis for the decline is in simple terms that people do not believe in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to comprehend 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 reflect on all the good things that Churches represent in our Kesgrave community then it's actually amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Kesgrave to be a good location to dwell, where individuals get along, they help 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 Kesgrave church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wants to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as neighborhood schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants 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 recently 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, 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 in recent times walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, considering his anti-gay 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 space to be - a good place 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 gravestone..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.
