Oxted Church

Oxted Church in Surrey has a lot of churches for distinct religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Oxted is no exception.

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

We think the grounds for the decline is in simple terms that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 represent in our Oxted community then it is truly startling numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Oxted to be a good place to live, where people get along, they help each other 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 Oxted church and demand 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 nobody desires to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated 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, poor 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, various 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, bearing in mind his anti-homosexual speech-making in the past, 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 ruminate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

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