Churches tally up their value to society – at £12.4bn

On a typical day, you might find an exercise class, a support group for asylum seekers and refugees, community meals being cooked and served, singing and stories for infants, mosaic-making, and people hunting for jobs or claiming benefits online.

Excellent. If only they'd stop wasting their time with the religious stuff, they'd be just fine.

I think you should have properly funded and properly resourced support for asylum seekers, refugees, pre-school activities, job hunting, and emergency food relief, not a bunch of amateurs ramming the bible down your throat at the same time.

Innit.

That's one world beating T and T system that doesn't work. Should try harder.

Agreed.

Finish what Henry 8th started.

I think the Dissolution of the Monasteries is pretty much done and dusted.

Coming soon !

I suspect I mean a former Henry.

Of course. I'll ignore the ignorant 'not a bunch of amateurs ramming the bible down your throat at the same time' bigotry.
