Beith Church

Beith Church in Ayrshire has many churches for distinctive religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Beith is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been tumbling for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population presiding at least once per month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the reason for the decline is simply that people don't have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the Earth and the economy in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you contemplate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Beith community then it's really startling figures are going down. Surely we all want our Beith to be a fantastic place to be alive, where inhabitants get along, they help each other in times of need and people give to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Beith church and make a request change, you want to assist, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a greater goal...it is time for change...come on people..let us get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have collaborated with other organisations such as neighborhood schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, feeble and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a good light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light recently with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, countless people have speculated that it is not just a matter of the pope getting older and not being able to carry out his job to the fullest.

The scottish Cardinal Keith O'Brien in recent times walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men schooling to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-gay speech-making in the past, this was seen as "do as I say not as I do"!

On the lighter side of things churches are seen as a very peaceful space to be - a good space to reflect on the things that are going on in your life at the present time.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that is a game that can keep children amused for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the graveyard.
