IS it any surprise that churches are closing when some seem to have lost touch with Christianity?

As an example Bondgate Methodist church is (allegedly) closing the cafe it runs at the church sometime this month.

I have yet to see any official notice of this closure though I believe it has had a mention on Facebook! This facility has recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. Many of the people who eat there are in need of companionship and compassion as much as food and all the volunteers who work there are happy and able to supply this.

I wonder how many of those who are pressing for closure have been to see this in action?
