Why don't people make time for church? This is a question I have often read about, discussed with others or heard talks examining the reasons.

Could it be that people don't know what it's about any more? Do parents or carers not see why it would be worthwhile for their child to go to church? At a small group for 9- to 10-year-olds, two churched children shared how their friends thought that 'church was for babies' and 'there were more important things to do'. Churches have become much better at making our communities aware that we exist, but are we as good at telling them what we exist for? What would a child gain from coming to church?

Read it all.
