Shepperton Church

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

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

We think the rationale for the decline is simply that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it's easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 ruminate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Shepperton community then it is really amazing figures are going down. Surely we all want our Shepperton to be a splendid location to dwell, where people get along, they help one another in times of hardship 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 Shepperton 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. The UK is on its knees because hardly anybody desires to work to a better 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, humble 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 six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, numerous 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 schooling to be priests, in view of 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 position to be - a good place to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

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