Leiston Church

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

Alas church attendance has been dropping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population presiding at least once every month, still Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the grounds for the decline is just that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the wealth of the nation 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 core 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 Leiston community then it's actually startling numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Leiston to be a good location to dwell, where inhabitants 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 Leiston church and demand 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 desires 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 native 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 of late with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, loads 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, taking into consideration 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 spot to cogitate 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 headstone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
