Stratford-upon-Avon Church

Stratford-upon-Avon Church in Warwickshire has many churches for separate religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Stratford-upon-Avon is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been plummeting for the last fifty years in the UK, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once every month, in spite of everything Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the population.

We think the rationale for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the central 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 stand for in our Stratford-upon-Avon community then it's in reality extraordinary numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Stratford-upon-Avon to be a fantastic place to dwell, where inhabitants get along, they assist each other 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 Stratford-upon-Avon church and demand change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your district 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 us get as one and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as community schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, meager 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, countless 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 resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into account his anti-homosexual rhetoric 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 quiet position to be - a good space to reflect on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

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