Alderley Edge Church

Alderley Edge Church in Cheshire has a lot of churches for distinct religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is regular for a town to have more than one church and Alderley Edge is no exception.

Regrettably church attendance has been plummeting for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the population attending at least once per month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the people.

We think the grounds for the decline is in simple terms that people do not have faith in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it is easy to understand peoples lack of faith. In our opinion the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the core values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you ruminate on all the good things that Churches represent in our Alderley Edge community then it is really extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our Alderley Edge to be a splendid location to inhabit, where individuals get along, they help each other in times of hardship and people offer to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Alderley Edge church and pressure for change, you want to help, and you think it is only right and proper that the rest of your district chip in and help with things. This country is on its knees because nobody wishes to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

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

Churches have been seen in a dim light recently with the pope resigning, the first pope in more than six hundred years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, various 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 recently walked out after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-gay language 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 quiet spot to be - a good place to cogitate on the things that are going on in your life at the present moment.

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