How often (if you do) do you go to church?

I was just curious about the ways that fellow EF members practice their faith (if any).

Neither my husband or I are particularly religious, so we never make the time to go to church. His parents go every Sunday and on holidays.

I used to go to church fairly often (not by choice), then it turned into just holidays, and now never. I have not gone to church since one of my very close friends died in highschool.

I'm pretty dead set against organized religion of any kind. Faith is one thing, living by the golden rule and all of that should be fundamental regardless of your culture or religious beliefs so I really see no reason to have a bunch of people telling me how to live my life by a rhetoric that has been edited to reflect the wants and desires of long-dead rulers.

I'm all for religion in general but I'm not religious and I've had bad experiences with organized religion. Of the brainwashing variety. So, no, I don't ever go. And neither will my children unless they're old enough to make their own decisions.

I should clarify: I voted Never, but that is not entirely true. I was not brought up in a super religious household, I think I went to Sunday School a few times, but I'm not against the idea of going to church. My kid goes to preschool at a church, So I do help out with classes there, and they teach a little bit of the bible, but not much.

We go every week, and we enjoy it very much.

I used to go and stopped about three years ago. Most of the people at that church were "holier than thou" type people and you weren't part of the "members" unless you made a certain amount of money a year (and to clarify that was the opinion of the actual members, not the church itself). It's sad to say, but because of that I kind of lost my faith in the church.

No. Only for funerals, weddings and baptisms.

I don't anymore. I went every Sunday for years, on my own, despite my family being all atheists and agnostics. It's not even that I don't want to go now, it's that I got so frustrated of looking for one for me that I've kind of given up for the time being. It's important to me to be fully satisfied with a church and knowing I'm at the 'right' one, rather than just going somewhere every week.

When I was growing up, I went to church all the time. I enjoyed it, actually. As I got older, and started to think for myself. I did research and learned things about religion that left me in shock and awe. Now, I don't go to church or claim any religion, but I also make a valid point not to discourage anyone else from their own beliefs.. unless of course, they ask.

I don't think I've set foot in a church since I was confirmed when I was 13.

Gone on and off my whole childhood, but over the past 6 or 7 years, we try to go every week. We are Christian. We don't go to a church that tells us how to live our life, but a church that helps us feed our faith. It also focuses a lot on service to others inside and outside the church. It focuses a lot on fellowship as well. We are very blessed that we found a great church that isn't about: "Telling you right and wrong" and more: "Teaching us what the Bible says." I honestly think that if more churches were like my church and less like the one we left, there wouldn't be as much of the "I had bad experiences with churches" that happens SO MUCH.

I was forced to go when I was a child, I was in the drill team, dance team, and choir.
It was miserable. Over half my week was dedicated. I had no issue with religion until when I asked questions I was shut down and ridiculed.
I lost faith and just stopped going as soon as possible. I haven't gone back since and don't intend to.

I went when I was a child with my mom, she changed religion and become very devoiut and we would go every sunday. I hated it though. They would make us read the bible in french and I didn't know how to read in french all that well and I felt really bad about myself being there.

The church has always made me feel uneasy and I went for the last time at a baptism...I was not very comfortable being there but I was becoming god-mother so I had to be there.

I didn't bother to vote in the poll because none of those options fit me personally. I was raised in a Christian household, but upon becoming my own person have seriously changed my religious views. I don't go weekly or never or only on holidays or even once a month. My 7 yr old loves Sunday School. The playmates, the crafts, the songs. All of it. So I go whenever the kid wants to go see friends and play. While Sunday school is going on, I'm usually sitting in the sanctuary listening to a sermon. Sometimes I am still moved by the words and the enthusiasm, but for the most part, it just makes me feel ill at ease. I endure for my little one though and I think that's the important thing for me.

I noticed there wasn't an option for people who attend more than once a week. For example, many people attend church on Sundays, as well as other functions like book studies, youth events, or community/charity work later in the week.

That was one of my last times as well. I think I only went to funeral masses after that.

Never, and I could tell you exactly why. I read the bible and never wanted to go to church ever again. And then I became a wiccan.

I used to go twice a week and was involved in the ministry and volunteering. Then I stopped believing in God. I do believe in good people with good intentions.

I go with my family, and it usually averages out to being once or twice a month. I wouldn't go by choice, but I know it makes them happy.

Never. I have only been a few times in my life due to being asked to go by friends or family, but I'd never go of my own accord.
