Churches

  • Churches such as the Church of England or the Roman Catholic Church, are world-accommodating, meaning that they are also linked to society’s major institutions, and have a hierarchy of paid officials
  • As a church aims to be the spiritual home of everyone in society, their membership is open to all and is easily obtained
  • However they tend to attract the middle-classes due to their conservative beliefs
  • People qualify for membership simply by being born into that society
  • Their worship tends to be restrained and based on traditional ritual, rather than spontaneous
  • They claim to have the monopoly of truth.
