    No.

    I've been a few times, but only to volunteer etc. I like the architecture and the community feel, though.

    Not that I go myself, but why do you have the sudden change to go more often?
    I love being in a church and wanting to get closer to God

    I'm an atheist and have never been religious (nor have any of my immediate family).

    PS. Church attendance in the UK is at all-time lows.

    Been to a few services and stuff like remembrance day. But those are mainly weddings, or done through Army Cadets. Ah well, I'm not really religious anyway.

    That is what I am saying. You patronise the Church. Oh it looks nice and does good charity work, but I will not allow myself to listen to its teaching or give it the power to empress that beauty and charity within peoples lives. You just use the Church as something it was never meant to be. You are better off just getting rid of it and replacing it something that was meant for the purpose you use the Church for.

    I get incensed by this sort of thing. You just use the Church. Get rid of it or believe in it.

    Technically speaking, I'm not using the church; I just get dragged along to events. Unless I'm admiring the architecture and stuff.

    Like on weekends and especially Christmas and on Easter or any other Christian celebration/holiday? If so do you go to a particular church?

    I've been slacking but would love to go on a regular basis myself.
    Hello.

    I'm an ex-Muslim (I've abandoned Religion actually) but I've always wanted to experience a Church Service. Could you please explain what i'm supposed to do? Like do I just walk in and sit wherever and is there any particular conduct I should respect or adhere to?

    I used to go to church three times a week, although now I only go twice or even once.

    Yet you don't want to maintain the belief which created that architecture and stuff. This is my point.

    Lol. I can recognise the beauty of a building without having to condone or agree with the teachings/beliefs it symbolises/propagates.

    As for your latter 'point', it's not my fault most people don't go to Church anymore. That's a problem for your religion, perhaps.

    Anyone is welcome. I really want to go to the Coptic Christian church near my house in Kensington. I will probably cover my hair when I go as I'm from an orthodox Christian background
