Poynton Church

Poynton Church in Cheshire has several churches for assorted religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is conventional for a town to have more than one church and Poynton is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been dipping for the last fifty years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, nevertheless Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the populace.

We think the basis for the decline is just that people don't believe in God any more, with wars raging across the planet and the wealth of the nation in a bad way it's straightforward to understand peoples lack of faith. In our estimation 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 contemplate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Poynton community then it's in reality startling figures are going down. Surely we all want our Poynton to be a good location to live, where inhabitants get along, they help one another in times of need 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 Poynton church and plea for change, you want to help, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your community chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly a soul desires to work to a superior 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 local schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of people such as the lonely, humble 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 to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, a lot of 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, considering his anti-gay rhetoric in bygone times, 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 spot to reflect on the things that are happening in your life at the present time.

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