They say that Church attendance is dropping, why do you think that is?



I heard this at school a few times and from a few friends who have mums and dads who used to go to church, but don't really bother anymore because the number of people turning up is getting smaller and smaller.

This is in England btw. I guess things may be different elsewhere. What do you think this is down to?

Perhaps it's easier to pray at home, while listening to Eminem on your iPod

I think it's because the church has become less relevant to society as a whole, failing to keep up with the changes in morality, it seems they are either following on behind (pun not intended) or refusing to acknowledge that anything has changed and turning more and more inward looking.

I've said for years that church attendance isn't dropping - it's just that the people who went but did not attend, aren't going any more.

EG people who went because it was "the right thing to do" rather than because of a personal faith, aren't going any more. :}
