Plaistow Church

Plaistow Church in West Sussex has numerous churches for diverse religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Plaistow is no exception.

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

We think the reason for the decline is in basic terms that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the world and the economy in a bad way it is straightforward to comprehend 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Plaistow community then it is really shocking numbers are going down. Surely we all want our Plaistow to be a fantastic location to inhabit, where people get along, they assist 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 Plaistow church and plea for change, you want to assist, 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 nobody 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 worked together with other organisations such as resident schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people 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 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 recently deserted after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, in view of 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 spot to be - a good space to ruminate on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

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