Shoreham-by-Sea Church

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

Regrettably church attendance has been dropping for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace presiding at least once per month, nonetheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the inhabitants.

We think the basis for the decline is just that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our opinion 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 Shoreham-by-Sea community then it is really surprising figures are going down. Surely we all want our Shoreham-by-Sea to be a fantastic place to dwell, where individuals get along, they assist 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 Shoreham-by-Sea church and plea for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly anybody desires to work to a superior goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated 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 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, 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 walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, in view of his anti-gay words 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 position to be - a good place to ruminate 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 is a diversion that can keep kids smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they run/walk round the graveyard.
