Chalfont St. Peter Church

Chalfont St. Peter Church in Buckinghamshire has various churches for various religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is frequent for a town to have more than one church and Chalfont St. Peter is no exception.

Sadly church attendance has been dipping for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace attending at least once every month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the grounds for the decline is just that people don't have faith in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is easy to comprehend peoples lack of faith. In our judgment 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Chalfont St. Peter community then it's in reality remarkable figures are going down. Surely we all want our Chalfont St. Peter to be a splendid spot to dwell, where persons get along, they help each other in times of hardship and people give to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Chalfont St. Peter 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. The UK is on its knees because nobody desires to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get together and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together 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 people such as the lonely, feeble 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 600 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 in recent times resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training 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 quiet place to be - a good space to reflect on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as kids was to find the oldest tombstone..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 run/walk round the graveyard.
